For those of you who were skeptical about growing celery, from just cutting off the bottom of a celery stalk purchased from the store or farmers market: After placing the cut piece in water to grow roots, I planted the cut end with roots in soil, and watered it regularly.
Here’s the evidence:
Cut end in water waiting for roots to grow.
End planted in soil, waiting for fully grown stalks to harvest.
Harvest time, complete stalks, and heavy roots.
I had Bulldog Man cut off the celery ends from my harvest to start the process all over again. Now I could have left the ends in the soil but decided not to.
I have so many stalks to harvest, I decided to flash freeze some cut up celery to use in stews and soups.
I harvested potatoes, parsnips, carrots, and atomic carrots, from the garden to roast and added beets previously harvested from my garden. When you roast these, all of these vegetables together with olive oil, salt and pepper; it’s like eating candy. I complimented my chicken cordon bleu with these vegetables for dinner one night.
Here’s a cute little video of our guard dog watching through the garden gate, to make sure no one steps on the property. If they do, he’ll have to chew them up and spit them out………………..including you, PP!!
In the next couple of days, I will be hosting another great give-away; keep an eye out to register.
Happy 4th of July, please be careful and safe with fireworks, and enjoy this great holiday.
