Back in February of this year I mentioned in a post that I was growing celery for the first time in ten years and that I was following the advise received from a video by an Asian woman named Regine. I was so intrigued that I decided to give it a try. We started seeds back in February as the germination period is quite long compared to lettuce and cabbage. Also, the seedlings take a long time to mature enough to set out in the garden.
I followed Regine’s advice and spaced the seedlings approximately 8 inches apart. We have 16 plants growing in a space that is 3′ x 4′. Celery is happiest in near swamp conditions, so I have been watering the patch every day, sometimes twice a day.
The results have been excellent. We harvest individual stocks from each plant and have been harvesting for over a month now.
We are growing a variety called “Tango”. We have been using the celery in stir fries, salad, mirepoix, and as a salad all by itself. The celery patch is just beginning to show some signs of playing out due to the heat. I have already started more seeds for a fall crop. All in all, a very good success.
