The Celery Growers

Early this spring the girls were with me in the greenhouse helping to plant the celery seeds.Celery sprouts

They had their hands in the dirt as we transplanted the young plants into the garden and were eager to man the hose and help water them through the early summer.  Once the celery was ready to be harvested they took over chopping it all by themselves so that I could freeze it for this winter.

But, despite what the “experts” say, I’ll bet you a doughnut they won’t touch it when they see it floating in their soup this winter.

    Where’s the fun in eating celery? 🙂

      According to my girls there is none. I even try ants on a log and they just lick everything off the celery. Oh well, at least they might learn how to garden even if they never eat their veggies. 🙂
