I have heard of scrap gardening, but we never really thought to try it. We bought celery about a month ago, and I kept looking at thinking... What if? What if I put it into a bowl of water? What if I didn't put it in with the scraps to go out to the compost bin? What if I didn't throw it into the food scrap bowl to feed the pig? What if.. What if it grew?
So I asked Zoey, "What if?" and she said, "Let's do it!" and guess what it did...
And it Grew!
To the point we thought, "What if... we planted it?"
Zoey went out to the yard for the good gardening soil. We got out a Terra Cotta pot. She filled it half way with soil.
She put the celery plant in the pot and then used the rest of the soil to cover up the rest of the plant.
Suddenly, our big celery plant, did not look so big. But that is okay, because it grows larger every day.
We sat our celery plant in the kitchen window where it is nice and sunny, even in winter time. It has already grown bigger since we took this picture. Now we wonder, "What if it grows large enough that we can eat it?" :)
We are working with these onion ends now. Hmmm... What if?
