Nothing too ordinary about this stalk of celery would you say? Well, that is what I thought until a few months ago, during the winter months I saw somewhere online about growing a celery plant from the end you cut off. I kid you not, and I did not believe it for myself, and when I went to try and find where I saw that very thing, I could not find it, not even with Google.
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!
