regrow your veggies how to replant your kitchen scraps

Celery is one of those veggies that I love because I can throw it in all kinds of stuff and no one even knows it’s there.  I especially love to put it in spaghetti and pizza sauces! Did you know that you can replant your celery?  It’s not quite the instant gratification like the green onions but it still grows fairly quickly.

Cut the celery stalks leaving the base.  Then put the base of the celery in a dish filled with water.  The celery drinks a lot of water so you will have to keep adding water fairly frequently.  Your celery will start to grow from the center.  Keep the celery base in the water until you start to get stalks forming and leaves.  The photo above was taken about a week and a half after it was put in the water.
