Planting ginger

I recently learned that you can replant ginger, and it will continue growing! How exciting. We love ginger, so I was very eager to give this a try. Here is what  I did. 

1. Soak ginger overnight and break/chop into smaller pieces That was the original piece

I broke it in about half 

Here is the empty pot 

2. Fill pot with some earth

3. Put in ginger, and fill with more earth. 

4. Water

 Simple as that! Ginger likes warmth though, so you should make sure to bring it inside during the winter, or at least before the first frost. During the summer, it can go outside. The root will continue to grow, and you can eat that. Otherwise, they grow beautiful flowers.
