Celery....Celer....arrrrgghh!!!


I read from Toby's blog how easy it is to plant celery. So that's what I did. I love celery and I reckon I should have some in my garden.

What you see here is what I stuck into the pot after removing the outer stalks for consumption.


 I watered it faithfully everyday and it seemed to grow.


I was very encouraged.


And then one morning....


....grrrrrr!!!! It was a very dark gloomy morning hence the quality of the photo. Sam the snail was happily snacking on my celery.

Well, I had it removed, pronto!


Tsk! One stalk gone. I have to keep a watchful eye for pesky critters.

Sadly my celery did not survive. Not because Sam chewed on it but because I over watered it :(

  2. Unlike you, I absolutely hate celery, so I will not be attempting this anytime soon. Also, couldn't you turned the snail into escargot? That would be nice. :P

  3. It's not that you failed at growing celery, you grew one that's obviously very tasty for Sam...haha! ;D This is not the same stinky Chinese celery leaves I had the other day, right? Otherwise, good riddance....wakakakakaka! ;P

  5. I love celery but hubby won't eat it. So no planting of celery for me. I hate it when the snails came to chew on our edibles. It can be so frustrating! Ha ha! I too have the habit of over watering and drowning my plants.

    1. I can't seem to get it right with watering. I always fear my plants will dry out and die when in actual fact they will die with too much water.

  6. Never mind, try again. Do not overwater this time. ;)

    I also failed few times in planting. Not every plants are the same. Some is easy but others hard to take care of. I learn that.

  14. I think I'll try to plant celery as I always cannot finish a packet by myself before it got rotten and luckily my balcony garden don't have any Sam's relative :P

    1. hah..hah.. Then your celery should do well. Just don't over water it.

  15. Oh, over-watering pun tak boleh eh? I ingat just water the plant..

    Aha, I lagi best. The plant that I got from my friend for my son's school project, I letak bawah aircond lagi, PH. By now, sudah layu ^_^ Kesian that plant. Kalau still at my friend's house, tentu hidup subur sampai 'dewasa' tapi dapat kat I ni, hancur jadinya!
