Re- Growing Celery

 Don't toss that celery base! Did you know you can use it to re-grow a new bunch of celery?
2012_04_20-regrowcelery2.jpgI recently came across this topic on both Facebook and Pinterest, so I had to learn more. (Who knew that celery proliferation was all the rage?) It's apparently quite simple: just stand the base in a small dish of water for a week or so until new leaves appear in the center. The leaves will be yellow at first, and once they really emerge and turn green, you can plant the celery in the ground or in a pot.

You can also re-grow green onions, potato ends, ginger root, pineapples, avocados and garlic the same way.
