Pinterest Celery

on August 12, 2012

How many times have you looked in the fridge and found either the celery has gone yucky or you just didn’t have any.

So frustrating especially when you only need a stalk or two.

One day while cruising through Pinterest, I came upon an article about growing your own Celery.

It sounded feasible, was easy enough to do, and wouldn’t take up any extra room on the deck.

Off to the garden to get a flower pot! I can do this! Easy Peasy!

On the very bottom of the pot I put coffee filters, to hold the soil in, then in went the biodegradable packing peanuts to take up some of the space, and then the potting soil. I use the kind that has fertilizer already in it….Easy Peasy is the motto!

Yes I had purchased a fresh Celery bunch, just yesterday at the grocery store,and used my two stalks for some tuna salad.

I cut off the bottom of the stalk about 3 inches from the bottom.

The rest of the celery was put away in the fridge and the bottom was planted in the pot of soil.

Just stuck it in the dirt, about two inches deep, and gave it a good drink of water!

What’s to lose? If it didn’t work, it would all go in the compost pile!

Day 2

Day 2, The Grasshopper seems to approve!

Day 3

Day 3 the leaves are starting to sprout!

Day 7

Day 7 Real Leaves are growing!

Day 9

Day 9, The stalks are starting to form!

TaDa! The celery is actually growing, there are stalks starting to form.

Hopefully soon they will be big enough to start to harvest!

According to the article, you can just cut off what you need and new stalks will grow,

kind of like perpetual celery!
