Planted celery today, in a deep trench with compost and lime. Took some outside leaves off to help the little seedlings deal with the shock of transplanting. Gave them lots of water. In 8 months' time there will be crisp, light green stalks all ready to crunch in the mouth. It's good to know that some plants like cool nights and grow well over winter, even if slowly. Good too, to plant for several months ahead like this. In a fast culture, nice to plant slow food.
