Re: Garden Tip - Never buy Celery Again

I tried it with celeriac, and got a nice plant.
But then it would be a second year plant and in that case, would just go to seed.
I have gotten several stampings to several inches high, but then each time I do something dumb, like add something else to the pot, or some of them just die???
I never thought to put them out in the garden, perhaps I will have to give it a tray after looking at roses pictures
THANKS ROSE

After 2 days my celery stump is looking good. It started with 2 tiny leaves and that may have made the difference.

I threw out 2 of the romaine stumps and learned a lesson. Don't use anything with rot on it. I thought maybe the healthy part would throw off the rotten part, but it works the other way -- the rot spreads and kills the rest of the stump.

Day 3 -- Stump Therapy working -- not losing my mind in this heat.

This experiment is labor-intensive, so I don't recommend it if you have a life or something. Rolling Eyes 

I start with about an inch of base material. I look for veggies that are already starting to sprout in the fridge. If there's any sign of rot, cut it off or compost it and use a different stump. Cut off the stump as level as you can and put in 1/2" of water in a sunny or at least bright window sill. Change the water daily, including washing out the container -- they do get slimy. Now that I'm an "expert"  Rolling Eyes I will share some pics.

Here's the celery. Lookin' good. We eat a ton of it, so I'm really excited about getting a head start. I will also be planting seeds next week, so it will be interesting to see how they compare. I have never grown celery before either way. geek


Carrots: I wasn't paying attention when I started this experiment and didn't look for carrots that were already sprouting. I got lucky with the one on the right and since I took this pic, I found 3 more to add. It will be interesting to see how long (if ever) it takes the one on the left to sprout.


Here's the romaine. It isn't doing much yet, but I think it will be fine. It has a deep green glow inside.


Sweet potatoes: Doing fine. I will plant them out after the heatwave ends (if that ever happens Sad)


Hopefully I'll get a turnip and a sweet onion today to continue the experiment.

Nice, Suz. Anything to keep from going crazy indoors during the summer. I'll let you know when you should start the winter veggies. No, not today! Wink

I'm gonna plant some "2nd summer" seeds tomorrow, then hold my breath until you say it's time to plant for winter. bounce
