Celery - Just!

Monday was mild and dull with some rain in the afternoon. It looks like February is going to turn out to be a dry month. I’ll have to check the condition of the soil on the plot and see if it’s dried out enough to start digging it over. It’s odd that over the last 12 months we've been really short of rain but that the soil on the plot is too wet to dig.

The crops we’re giving extra attention to this year are celery and celeriac. If we manage to get anything to eat off these crops it will be an improvement on our past efforts.
Our early experimental sowing has started to germinate under our indoor grow light. Now it’s all tricky decision making. How long can they remain under the light? Will they become leggy? Is it too cold for them in the greenhouse? And so on.


  1. I think we had a month's worth of rain here yesterday afternoon. My daughter came in from school absolutely drenched, I could literally pour the rain water out of her shoes, they had to go on the raidiator to dry out. Good luck with your celery and celeriac, I've never tried growing either.

  2. A bit like the snow then. We did get some rain yesterday afternoon but not very much. I think we'll need all the luck we can get with the celery and celeriac.

  3. Celery takes forever to grow. Just keep them under the lights until they are much bigger.

  4. Hi Robin
    Thanks very much for the advice. I'll leave them under the lights to grow on.
