I have never had a belly ache from chocolate and I have eaten much more than my share of chocolate!

My celery butt is turning brown on the top. Is that OK? It looks gross. How far down was I supposed to cut it?

It's twice as big today as it was yesterday. I know at some point I'm supposed to plant this. I will have to go back to the link and read it. It's free, and I just want to see what happens.

The first one I did is about 3 inches tall, lots of leaves (I figured even if all I got were leaves, I use those in stock and chopped up in salads), I was getting more for my $ than if I tossed the "butt" in the compost (which the girls would then eat...so I guess I get it recycled in eggs...). Anyway, I think you have to wait for the roots to grow before planting. I too will have to go back to the link!

The article said to wait for roots. I have no roots yet. I just put mine in a small bowl with cool tap water. I put it in on the 10th. I noticed the first growth yesterday, the 14th, and today the growth looks twice as big as yesterday. Each day I change the water and I submerge the top in the water to moisten it. The directions said to spray it with water. I will take a pic and post it.

It says you can do this with bok choy too. Another one I will try.

My romaine lettuce bottoms are starting to sprout. If it grows roots, I will use the pot from the basil and the pot from the parsley. Those are full of compost. The rest of my compost is in the garden under lots of snow.
