Day 311: Saved Carrot Tops

Carrots tops are edible, slightly bitter, but edible. Instead of tossing them I saved them to later use in a salad.

According to the NYC Compost Project, “The average New York City household discards two pounds of organic waste each day—adding up to more than one million tons of organic material a year. When we discard this “waste,” we lose a potential resource that can help beautify our parks, gardens, and blocks…even our windowboxes and houseplants.”
What was your simple green act for the day?

  • PS Great Picture!
  • Add them to soups too! I chop them fine like parsley and they do add flavor. Vegetable tops, from carrots, beets, green onions all are usable.
  • You are very wise man.
