The Damsel was so taken with the easiness of regrowing green onions that she reached out to the universe and found out there are other things you can do with produce trimmings besides compost them. (Click here for green onion instructions)
You can regrow celery. Amazing.
Imagine here a photo of the bottom of a bunch of celery, trimmed off as usual, maybe three inches or so from the root end. Imagine it sitting in a little dish of water. Now you have, in your mind’s eye, the photo the Damsel assumed she had for you but has utterly failed to produce.
The next time you buy celery, try this. Cut it off the root end, stick it in a dish of water, and in just a few days, you’ll see little celery leaves starting to grow. Keep adding water as needed, but don’t fuss.
After a week to ten days, you can plant it, either in a pot in your kitchen window or outside, if the weather’s nice. Just stick it in dirt.
The Damsel is waiting to find out whether stalks will grow, or just leaves. But she feels pretty happy about the whole situation, especially since she happens to like the leaves quite a lot for cooking. She’s always felt that in stalk form, celery’s main purpose on this planet is to carry dip to one’s mouth.
It’s nice to be useful.
