Growing what we eat one ingredient @ a time
A Winter's supply of celery growing in a raised bed 2' wide by 6' long. There are also some volunteer tomato plants growing in the far back portion. Not sure what type don't remember ever planting this variety - pale round yellow almost beefsteak like. Of course could be something that popped up from scavenged compost ingredients from a local restaurant.
The celery will be dehydrated and stored in jelly jars vacuum sealed closed to be used in soups and stews this winter.
In earlier growing seasons this bed has housed zucchini, salad greens, pickling cucumbers, and paste tomatoes.
The cinder blocks and pavers were a great free find years ago at my city dump.
