Celery – Growing up on the farm we grew a LOT of Celery – and I spent much of my youth “watering the celery” – because this is a veggie that likes to drink! Alnong with Kale we are seeing more celery being ‘juiced’ – so more folks are trying it… BUT celery is one of the more difficult vegetables to grow, so beginner vegetable gardeners are not encouraged to try. However, gardeners that are up to a challenge love to grow this very versatile veggie. Make sure you provide the plants with plenty of water, sun and rich, well composted soil. Used in ancient times as a medicinal herb, celery is incredibly rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. This combined with the fact that it has no calories makes it a winning vegetable all around.
