DIY: Vegetable Magic

Recently, I have been looking at pinterest for gardening. I have been into gardening lately, mostly nice shrubs, herbs, and some veggies. Nothing too crazy, since I have no idea what I'm doing. Anyhow, one day I saw something about vegetables you can regrow from itself! So I obviously had to read it, and noticed celery was on the list. And I had just finished a celery stock, and had the bottom remaining, which is exactly what you need.

First day: You need to place the cut celery bottom in a bowl filled with about 1/2 inch of water. I left it like this for couple days and refilled the bowl when it got low. 
4 days later, green leaves started to sprout out! This was very exciting for me.

 9 days later, the celery stems were more obvious, and looking very green. At that point, I placed the celery bottom in soil and watered it regularly. I made sure the celery bottom was covered in soil but the newly grown stems were out of the soil. 

12 days later, the celery stock is way more obvious and getting taller. 

And today, we are at day 16. It has been a little over 2 weeks and it appears to me that my celery project has been successful. It isn't a full grown celery stock yet, but only time will tell.  

Have you ever tried this? Any tips? I will keep you posted on my celery project!
