What do you do with old ginger root?

I found a few clumps of old ginger root on our fresh spice shelf. Some of them had growth buds sprouting out. I did not want to throw them away and decided to bury them in the soil for them to grow.

It has been several weeks now and they have now grown into tiny plants. There is something magical about watching plants transform from something so small into the most important living organisms on earth.
