Re-Grow Your Celery

That bunch of celery you bought at the grocery store? It might turn into an eternal supply of celery if you have any gardening luck at all. Sheryl at Chickens in the Road cuts off the bottom end of the whole bunch and plants it. The roots and stalks start regrowing immediately!

It will grow a brand new top to be cut and used. After re-growing celery, you can cut and plant the bottom again for more new growth from the top.

I plan to start planting my cut celery bottoms in small pots or trays late next winter so that I have a few dozen to plant out into the vegetable garden in May. I wonder if I can grow it in a sunny window all winter!

Have you ever tried this? Link -via Bits and Pieces

But.... But that's piracy! Oh my. Picture if everyone did that, root-sharing. It's the end of civilisation...
Now imagine, if you could take an old potato, let it go green, sprout shoots, and.... plant it and get lots of new potatoes.
Oh my...
And if you could take the seeds of a tomato, and sink them in a little moist soil, on your window-ledge and get a whole new tomato plant?

Citizens, this is a road that leads to anarchy.
The celery police are at your door. Now.

we tried in this past growing season. We didn't get more than one or two need stalks sprouting, then when we transferred it to our garden, something at it :(

I think I will try again next spring, however...
