Re-Growing Celery

Re-Growing Celery
Did you know that you can grow another complete celery stalk from the bottom piece that you cut off and throw away? This is new to me, too, but I have been doing it this year and it works! I use a lot of celery when cooking and I hope to save quite a bit by re-growing it throughout the spring and summer. When I bring the celery home, I cut the end off first then put the rest into the refrigerator. I usually set the bottom piece on a saucer of warm water overnight to get it started. Also, because I am usually busy cooking and working in the kitchen when I do this and don’t have time to plant it right away, I think this gives it a head start. When I have time, I will take that piece and plant it just like it is, in the vegetable garden with the stalk side up. This is one planted about three days ago. This one was planted about 10 days ago. It will grow a brand new top to be cut and used. I may never need to buy celery again! You can also find Sheryl at Providence Acres.

The Family Farm Is Being Systematically Wiped Out Of Existence In America An entire way of life is rapidly dying right in front of our eyes. The family farm is being systematically wiped out of existence in America, and big agribusiness and the federal government both have blood all over their hands. According to the U.S. TBI Water Week: Back To Life – The Story Of A Lake In concluding our Water Week, we couldn’t think of a more apt story than one that fills our hearts with gladness, and an old, defunct lake with water! Read how the efforts of an Environmental outfit, together with the co-operation and willingness of the villagers, revived a lake thought to be dead, and turned around the fortunes of a small region. World Water Day is celebrated every year. And every year we re-dedicate ourselves to improving the quality and quantity of water in the world.

5 New Solutions For Growing Healthy Produce Indoors Jeffrey GreenActivist Post An increasing number of people are moving into urban environments and away from traditional agriculture.

USDA Admits Exterminating Birds, Crops, and Bees The USDA has been under fire recently for its admitted assault against nature, after multiple investigations have uncovered its deliberate tampering with both plants and animals alike.
