I have seen posts on the internet about regrowing celery from the base of a grocery store stalk. I tried it once before by placing it in a small amount of water in a cup, but nothing happened. About a week ago, I was cleaning out my fridge , I found an old limp partial stalk of celery. It was starting to look yucky around the edges. Just as I was heading to the garbage can with it, i decided to give it another try. I truly figured that if my healthier stalk before didnt work, this one definitely wouldn't. But what did I have to lose? So I cut off about an 1" thick chunk off of the base and tossed the rest. This time, I just used a old small 1/4 cup measuring cup I had. I just filled the cup partially with water, set the base into it and set it in my kitchen window. Low and Behold......I now have growth.
THIS blog post, I decided to go ahead and plant it. Especially since I am going way for a week on Friday and wouldnt be here to maintain the water level.
