Renewable crop?

What a fun idea…grow your own celery from the leftover root end of the old head.

This would be a great project to do with children.   We always used green beans because they sprout so quickly and are easy to work with.  Celery would be easy too and make a lasting impression as it grows very fast and is so cute.

This is 3 days growth…all I did was set the business end of the celery in a little bit of water.   Sure didn’t take it long to send up the first few stalks.   I need to transfer the whole mess to a pot of dirt and set it in some filtered sunlight.  

Imagine…if you took care of it, you would never have to buy another bunch of celery!
