This year I decided to try something new in my garden by planting the bottom of an organic celery stub to see if it would grow. If you would like to join in the fun in your own garden, simply eat your celery stalks and then instead of composting or throwing the rest out, slice off the bottom, stick in the ground and water. You will be pleasantly surprised at the results! Within a few days new growth will appear and walla! You will be on your way to growing a constant source of this nutritious, fibrous vegetable.
A source of natural sodium, organic celery is also a powerhouse in providing vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C and an excellent source of potassium, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus and amino acids.
