Stuff is growing real well. I hope the peas produce and it looks like they will.
Added later: Picked up 6 broccoli plants today. Was surprised to see 6 packs of celery at Ace Hardware. Bought a pack of those too. May go back and pick up another six pack. Years ago in my teens, I grew celery, but always grew it in the spring, not the fall. Tag says 80 days, so about 3 months to maturity, but I don't know when the clock starts ticking. May have to think about growing it in a container so I can protect from frost later on this fall as well as keep the sun exposure moderate. May even give blanching the stems a try. In the past, the home grown celery was used primarily for cooking so blanching is more visual than anything else and you loose nutrients this way.
Guess I need to order another one of Legion's self watering containers?
