I've been on a bit of a health kick lately and I bought a large stalk of celery. I sliced right through the whole stalk to have lots of little pieces to keep me from eating chocolate. Ha Ha! I had spring on the brain and can't wait for the growing season to start so I put the end of the stalk stem into a bowl of water. Within hours the center of the stalk seemed to be growing. Was I seeing things and wishing that I might? It took only 24 hours and sure enough there was life growing in the center of that stalk. Here is a what my stalk looks like after 1 week.
It looks like a pretty flower.
It is such an easy fascinating little experiment that I'm going to recreate it with my class this week. I think we will make a few predictions and keep a daily journal as a class. It's all very exciting. My wish is that it will grow as nicely as the one I have going at home. I may even try the top of a pineapple. Happy Growing.
Wishing you all Good Luck ! What are you wishing for?
