I’m really good at killing plants. I should get an award for “best at making plants die”. I killed an aloe vera plant… which are supposed to be super easy to take care of. Oops… Which is why I’ve waited awhile before sharing this awesome project with you guys. I had to make sure this one actually works AND that I could keep the plant alive for at least two weeks. Ha! Never throw the end of your celery away again!
Cut off the celery base. About 2-3 inches from the bottom? Use all the other celery in some yummy soups, for pb&celery, chicken salad (oooh, especially since now you know how to shred your chicken in 30 seconds!) Put it in a small hole with the cut side facing up.
And cover it with dirt. Then water it. Check on it daily and water it if it looks like it’s thirsty. Soon it will GROW! And then you can just cut off a stalk or two whenever you need one!! Mine isn’t big enough to eat yet… i’ll let ya know when that happens…. and then what happens after that! I assume it’ll keep growing new stalks but I really haven’t a clue.
My photo at the top was after 2 weeks…. so it does like to take it’s sweet time growing. But hey, I haven’t killed it yet! Anyone else terrible at keeping plants alive?
So – go plant your celery. This can go on your list of “pinterest projects that I’ve actually tried!” All your friends will think you are so smart.
