Hmm, potatoes maybe? Also, if you have strawberries, they produce runners.

The next time you have green onions, don't throw away the white ends. Simply sub...merge them in a glass of water and place them in a sunny window. Your onions will begin to grow almost immediately and can be harvested almost indefinitely. We just use kitchen scissors to cut what we need for meals. I periodically empty out the water, rinse the roots off and give them

Strawberries put out runners that will form new plants at the end of the runner.  If you can find someone that has strawberry plants, ask them if they'd let you have some runner plants.

Potatoes:  cut them so you have at least 2 eyes on each piece.  Plant the potatoes; they'll send out roots and stems.

Sweet potatoes: cut in half.  Set the cut end in water.  The potato should put out some vines, and these can be slipped off and rooted in water, then plant.  Sweet potatoes like warmth, so the water should be kept around 80°

Garlic:  separate into cloves and plant them with the pointed end up.
