Last winter when I finished a bunch of celery (I seem to use a lot of celery although I don’t talk about it much), I put the remaining inner core of it into a glass of water which rooted and I successfully planted into my garden in the spring. The individual stalks are pretty thin but they have great flavor and I can just waltz out into the garden and pick what I need. As an added bonus, the squirrels don’t eat it. Obviously then, they are not drinking bloody Marys.
Also this: First attested in English in 1664, the word “celery” derives from the French céleri, in turn from Italian seleri, the plural of selero, which comes from Late Latin selinon, the latinisation of the Ancient Greek: σέλινον, translit. selinon, “celery”. The earliest attested form of the word is the Mycenaean Greek se-ri-no, written in Linear B syllabic script.
