Review:

My neighbor told me I couldn't grow celery. But somebody grows celery, right? I took it as a challenge. The first year I grew them, I put them in my herb garden and just treated them like my parsley & etc. they gave me lots of leaves, but not much in the way of stalks. This year, I put a little more effort into it and am pleased with my results. I started them indoors in March in peat pots on a windowsill rather than under lights with the other seedlings, because I read that they like day/night temperature fluctuations. Germination took awhile. I planted them out in late May and I read that you have to keep them well mulched so the soil stays moist and cool and they blanch. So I dumped my lawn clippings on the celery whenever we mowed. This seems to have worked out well. I was eating thin stalks by July. Now (October) I've got lots of fat stalks. Tasty and crunchy. It was a very hot and humid summer.
