There are many concerns in many countries of the world about food security, as the restrictions imposed by governments and countries on movement, commercial activity, the natural exchange of materials, and the closure of many airports and ports in an attempt to limit the spread of the Corona virus, limit the amount of food imported by many countries. And it originally depends.


There are many countries that do not produce their food, that is, their vegetables, fruits, wheat and many basic and basic foods as a result of the trade openness that we have known in the past two decades.


But the individual does not need seeds sometimes to circumvent the shortage of vegetables and fruits in many areas, and the remains of materials or vegetables can be reused and planted again easily and form a home garden of self-sufficiency. Among these are basic materials that we use every day, and the individual does not need more than good soil or common consumer compost, water and natural light:


Garlic: Garlic can be grown and harvested after a smooth green stem has grown on it, rather than throwing it or throwing it away. This is done in a pot of soil with the stem facing up and watered once a week. After weeks, you can get the traditional garlic heads as we buy them in the stores, thus compensating for any shortages.


Potatoes: Growing potatoes is easy, as you can put the sprout from it (or put the germinating part alone) directly into the soil at a depth of 10 cm. Or sometimes, a potato can be cut into three or four pieces and placed in water for at least three days, after which it is dried and planted in soil or compost.


Sweet potato: The potato is placed in a place that enjoys natural light in a cup of water until the leaves sprout and after that, after the roots are formed in the water, the potato can be transferred to the soil.


Mushrooms: It is possible to remove the mushroom hat or head and plant the stems in fertile soil or in excellent fertilizer, and this would give a new impetus to the thought, especially if you put the planted stems in a dark and humid place, which are basic conditions for obtaining this delicious food.


Leeks: Shallots also grow in water, like green onions, and their heads are usually placed where the roots are found in a glass container in a place of natural light.


Carrots: When you cut and clean carrots, keep a small section on the side of the leaves and put them in the water in a place where the light can reach. If you want to use the leaves, they can be left in the water, and if you want to use the roots, you should after putting them in the water, replant them in the soil.
