I'm fuzzy in the morning too!
I have started the celery a few times but after leaf and root growth they slowly die off so they never get bigger than 6 to 10 inches high.IT snowed last week (that is our usual winter), So I got outside today, because the rain let up and worked on getting the blackberries trained for this years crop.
The third attempt at my celery experiment is actually working. I raised celery in a window garden for 2 years and loved the aromatic smell they produced. I do not know what went wrong but they died on me.
So I have tried twice before to grow a celery root that I got at the store and had no luck. I got a few leaves to start but then the root crown rotted and never started any roots. This time I bought one that has a good amount of plant crown on it and tried again. I have it propped up in an old food storage container and am using the waste water from our Bata fish tank. Roots are forming and leaves/ new stocks are growing. If I get it far enough I will pot it and trim stacks every so often.
I got my second kit and started it. I gave the free kit to my oldest brother.I got a second picking of mushrooms off of the one kit and am starting it again for a third.
I did so well with them that I ordered another kit last night and this time I did the order correctly so I will be getting another kit for free.
In the case of the first kit (pictures are back in this thread) they grew and did not look like the Oyster Mushroom that grew on the second kit.Is the strange white stuff a different kind of fungus?
No no ade; it's mold like black mold that grows on condemned bathrooms. There's fungus among us. (Okay, it's fungus not mold but I think they're close) I like mushrooms however. Had them on my chicken tonight. Chicken in a crock pot with Campbells Golden Mushroom soup poured on top. More American ingenuity....sigh.Great job on the posts
Not too keen on mushrooms, myself: half-plant, half-fish (gills) and half-bacteria.......something doesn't add up
