I know you've already seen it, but what's a progression sequence without the 1st picture? :)
This was taken Tues. evening, March 6th.
And I'm sure you also remember this one, taken the following Sun., March 11th.
This was taken two days later, exactly one week after starting.
And this is what is looked like a couple of days later.
Finally, this is what it looked like this Sunday evening, just 12 days after chopping it off and putting it in water.
I've been thrilled to see how well it's going, and I don't even like celery. Though it does help in making a delicious chicken stock.
I was so tickled with the celery, I couldn't wait to try something else, so I pulled out some green onions.
I chopped these off and set them in this little condiment cup, with just enough warm water to cover the root ends this past Tues. evening, shortly after taking the third pic. of the celery. I told you I was excited.
You could see new growth the very next day.
(I know the picture is blurry - sorry! Well, the onions are blurry, but the wood is in focus.)
I went ahead and planted them out that evening.
And this is what they looked like Sunday evening.
Just five days - I love it.
I should have at least a few green onions well before the seed Bree and I have sown is ready.
You should give this a try. It's rather fun, and would be a good gardening choice for very small children since they wouldn't have to wait as long to see some progress from their work.
