Growing Celery Indoors Remember when we tested and shared how to grow onions indefinitely last week? Well, at the same time, we've been testing out another little indoor gardening project first gleaned from Pinterest that we're excited to share the successes of today — regrowing celery from it's base. We've figured out how to literally re-grow organic celery from the base of the bunch we bought from the store a couple weeks ago. I swear, we must have been living under a rock all these years or just not be that resourceful when it comes to food, but we're having more fun learning all these new little tips and tricks as we dive deeper into trying to grow more of our own food. This project is almost as simple as the onion growing project — simply chop the celery stalks from the base of the celery you bought from the store and use as you normally would. In our case, we had a particular homemade bean dip that needed sampling! Update 2: Here's how we are looking at almost 3-4 weeks of growth: Discover More:

Leafsnap, a new mobile app that identifies plants by leaf shape, is launched by Smithsonian and collaborators  The Smithsonian Institution, Columbia University and the University of Maryland have pooled their expertise to create the world’s first plant identification mobile app using visual search—Leafsnap. This electronic field guide allows users to identify tree species simply by taking a photograph of the tree’s leaves. In addition to the species name, Leafsnap provides high-resolution photographs and information about the tree’s flowers, fruit, seeds and bark—giving the user a comprehensive understanding of the species. Smithsonian botanist John Kress uses the new mobile app to correctly identify a katsura tree (Cercidiphyllum japonicum) growing in the Smithsonian’s Enid A. Haupt Garden on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. “We wanted to use mathematical techniques we were developing for face recognition and apply them to species identification,” said Peter Belhumeur, professor of computer science at Columbia and leader of the Columbia team working on Leafsnap.

Un mini mur végétal dans un cadre Nul besoin d'aller au quai Branly à Paris pour admirer un mur végétal. Il suffit de recréer cette ambiance à la maison... Et histoire de ne pas se lancer dans un projet insurmontable, le mieux est de commencer avec une petite surface pour bien en comprendre les mécanismes. Matériel nécessaire Mur végétal du quai Branly(Patrick Blanc - Paris) Un simple cadre en boisUne planche de bois qui servira de support à votre décoration verticaleUne bâche étanche, et trois goulottes en aluDu feutre horticole, quelques agrafes, et quelques pointes pour solidifier l'ensemble, un cutter, une agrafeuse pour murs.Et quelques plantes soigneusement choisies Des plantes à croissance rapide Chlorophytum Comme au quai Branly, un assortiment de fougères se trouvera très à l'aise sur un mur vertical, mais leur croissance lente demandera beaucoup de patience aux jardiniers.

Planter Table Zahra Shahabi and Ollie Hammick/CC BY-NC-SA 2.0 Beyond the conventional planter on your balcony, there are many ways to grow food and herbs right in your own home, without the need to rely on a trip to the store. London-based designers Jamie Elliott and Liam Healy of JAILmake created this table that's a mix of eating surface and mini-garden, where the legs are re-fashioned as planters and trellises to support climbing plants. Jaime and Liam describe the motivation behind this simple but intriguing design they call "Plantable", which is handmade to order in their South East London workshop using English oak and metal: The Plantable reintroduces nature back into the experience of gathering, cooking and eating a meal. It takes a currently domesticated object and enables nature to claim it back.The space provided for plants to grow in the four legs reflects on the distance we place between ourselves and the processes involved in making our food.
