Celery is so called “dirty” crop (heavily sprayed) so we only buy it organically grown. I’m certain that regrowing like this would work with conventionally grown too. Its easy to regrow so when you have cut off the head, just place it in water for a few days.
It will begin to grow new stalks in no time, but the roots are slower to develop. I have done this before only to find that it doesn’t like staying in water for too long, so this time, even with miniscule roots, I planted in soil.
No real rules for planting. You can see that one is submerged completely, the other half way. Both are happy. I have a third one ready to add.
These likely won’t regrow into thick stalks but for chopping up as an herb, it will be just fine.
These will go into the ground if our weather ever warms up! We don’t expect much by way of spring until Mothers Day up here, but this year, I think it will be even later.
In the meantime, I’m planning a more alkaline garden than in previous years. We are doing pumpkin, melons, beets and cucumbers from seed and have decided to buy Roma tomatoes as starts. Greens too.
We always do more than planned. Today, I’m sowing lettuce.
As to cancer….that feeling that its gone has returned. I had a strange experience two days ago. I wome up with a head ache and completely certain I was going to die at any minute. Just very ill. But I took a pill for the head ache…an over the counter one, and as the pain eased, everything else lifted. I trusted this tentatively at first but the next day the feeling remained and its still here. I have very bad moments within the day but something seems to be turning around for me:)
Knock wood that its remission!
