The best of my memory said to cut off the end and if you could not plant it right away, put it in some water. I almost forgot to take the picture....before I stuck it in the ground that is! ( I thought the only good thing about the end was making roses from dipped paint and paper.) Shows you how much I knew about celery!
I planted it in the ground and covered it with about an inch of soil. Luckily, we had lots of rain and I did not have to remember to water it. After about three days....this is what was coming out of the ground.
Yesterday, this is what I saw and today, it is even taller. I took my husband out back to the garden to have a look and he just looked at me...I think he doubted this would work in the first place.
Granted....I don't have a celery stalk to chop in my salad yet.....but by the looks of things, if it does not get too terribly hot around here, I just might in a few weeks. Yep...this is one of those things I had to see for myself! Seriously, I almost don't believe it!
