A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

Growing Celery From Celery...

A few weeks ago - I was inspired through Pinterest 
to visit Farm Bells Recipes at Chickens in the Road site.  They have an interesting post about 
'regrowing celery from a store stalk'.  
I decided to try it.  
I planted mine indoors since it's still a bit early 
for warm weather plants.
 I recently purchased an old enamel bucket that 
has some holes in the bottom.  Seemed like the perfect indoor garden for this idea.
 After a few weeks - this is what it's looking like.  
I don't have the best sunny windows - or I think it could have grown faster.  I keep it well watered 
and am excited to see...
...if I will actually get a full new celery stalk out
of this.  I'll plant it outside in a few weeks and we shall see...
Click on the link in this post for the full 'how-to'.  
But basically - you just cut off the bottom of a 
store bought celery stalk and plant it.  
How's that for thrifty?

I may have to try this! I think this is a project my kids would enjoy.

When we were kids, we would beg our mom for the celery stalk ends and put them in the top of a mason jar (mayo I think) and then watch them grow a few stalks. We had our own little garden on the window sill. I haven't thought of this for years.
