Growing my own celery

At the risk of turning into my mother I finished a head of celery (I had to look that one up I never knew the bunch was a head of celery, I only deal with stalks) and decided to grow my own again. I did this last year and was successful (one of my few home-grown food successes). We did this in grade school with carrot tops. I don’t think we ended up with carrots, just the ferny tops but I was sufficiently impressed that I still remember it. Celery grows really fast and I can put it out in the garden early since it is cold loving. And then I’ll have celery for a my celery needs. Which as far as needs go, I can really only come up with Bloody Marys and tuna salad. But there must be more. I use a lot of it. Unless my Bloody Mary consumption is out of control. Oh yeah, it is Lent after all and tuna is on the menu more than usual but I doubt I’ll be harvesting celery before the Easter bunny arrives.
