Food scraps. Flowers. Herbs.

I shared this photo on Facebook on Sunday. Quite a curious photo, eh?

I am making an attempt to regrow celery and green onions. After I cut off the end of the celery and the ends off the green onions, I put them in a bowl of water for 24 hours. Then I planted them in pots with potting soil. I probably should have used top soil, but the only bag I had was potting soil.

You can see that I buried the celery a bit in the dirt, I wanted to have a little space to add dirt if I needed to once it starts growing and needs more support.

According to all of the other places I read about this, I think I cut my onions off too short. We will see.

While I was in planting mode, I planted the Peony tuber and basil and rosemary plants that I got the other day.

I am so ready for everything to begin to grow. I am more ready for spring this year than I have been in a really long time.

Here's a few links for the celery and green onions.

So what about you, are you gonna give it a try with the celery and onions?


  1. I love the idea of regrowing celery! I'm going to have to try that.

    1. do give it a try...there's really nothing to lose, except what we would normally trash or compost anyway :-)

  2. I have seen this idea on Pinterest. I decided to try it. I had two stalk bunches at the time in my fridge from an organic label. I stuck it in a shallow dish for about 4 days because I just didn't get around to planting it. It started to grow some roots and sprout some leaves, so I guess I didn't do any damage. Yesterday I planted them into some potting soil (because that's all I had left over from last year too).We'll see how it goes!

    1. So far, I can already see a little change in the celery, but the onions look pretty bad. If the onions don't grow, I will try it again, but not cut them off so short. Do come back and let us know how yours do.

  3. nice post thanks for sharing...blessings...
