Just Grow It!
June 01, 2012
Spring has finally arrived! I love to grow and can my own vegetables. I was looking through one of the How to Grow your Own Vegetables books from the library, and it suggested that you take about 2 inches of the left-over celery end and put it in potting soil. In a couple weeks, it would grow a new stalk of celery for you.
Having a love for growing my own vegetables, I just had to try this. About 2 weeks ago, I put the celery end into my potting soil. Low and behold, I now have celery stalks growing in my pot!
They have the most beautiful green leaves on them, and in about 4 more weeks I should have a nice new celery stalk to eat. Who said a farm girl can’t learn new tricks?
If you're looking to grow your own vegetables take, I recommend these books:
- Eat Greens: Seasonal Recipes to Enjoy In Abundance by Barbara Scott-Goodman
- How to Grow Your Own Vegetables by Michael Kressy
- Other Books on Growing Your Own Vegetables
And if you want to cook and store your homegrown foods you might try these books:
