First Taste of Celery

Today was the day. The celery has become so beautiful and enormous in the Suburban Garden. Grabbed ahold and yanked it from the ground. Roots and soil are visible in the upper right corner of the photo. Also picked spinach, leaf lettuce and romaine lettuce and made an awesome salad. After months of TLC the moment arrived and we had the first taste of our first home grown celery. Let me be clear- this stuff had a strong taste, different than store celery. We made the salad with just the ingredients shown plus some avocado and dressing.
Now we have five more plants to harvest and they should all be ready within the next 10 days. So us Suburban Gardeners will be eating lots of celery.


  1. wow...what a delight to finally taste the "fruit" of labor huh! i will start my vegie garden soon too, i am just finishing my flower garden and head to the backyard

  2. That is some impressive celery. We had some from the store the other day. It was good with peanut butter and raisins.

  3. by the way, added you in the aggregator already

    your feed is in..thanks for joining

  4. I find home grown celery too strong to eat raw but it's great in soups, stews and sauces. There must be a trick to growing milder tasting celery..
    Your celery looks amazing.
