After you cut the bottom off of a bunch of celery... don't throw it away! You can easily grow a new bunch with just a couple steps! This makes a great project for kids
Cut the end of the bunch off, and place it in a shallow dish of water. Place in a sunny spot, but out of direct sunlight. Replace water daily. After about a week or two new leaves will start to sprout from the center of the bunch. Keep the celery in water until roots start to form on the bottom. At this point you can transfer the plant into a pot of soil... or directly into your garden. The old stalks will die off, and the new ones will continue to grow until they form a mature bunch.
Harvest and eat! Remember to save the bottom and continue the cycle
