    Hodecker's in Manheim. Take Harrisburg Pike away from town, all the way out through Landisville & Salunga, just past 283. It will sort of dead-end on a smaller road, Esbenshade. Follow Esbenshade out a little bit, they're right there.

    I found home grown celery to be much stronger in flavor than store bought. I use it in everything..It is so flavorful in soups, stir fry ect. Your post reminded me that I forgot to plant it this year. I have no luck with starting my own seedlings, though I start everything else. Seedlings are hard to come by here and I just forgot! Oh well-next year then.

    Can you gradually harvest celery? Like, take the bigger outside stalks first, and wait to harvest the smaller inner ones?

    I didn't say anything about it on this thread a few years ago but I have celeriac each year.

    Strangely, I have never used the stalks. They don't look very appetizing - fibrous/stringy. Besides, I'm always apprehensive about the plants making good roots so I wouldn't take them young. Right now, as usual, the plants are small things - despite the seed having been sown way back in March and the seedlings set out in April!

    It just seems that the celery root bides its time until doing the bulking up in September.

    As with cauliflower, I have only "tried" to grow actual celery once - unsuccessfully. Celeriac hasn't failed me but I did get awfully small roots once by transplanting them where they got a lot of shade.

    Thanks for bringing this thread back up. I planted celery this year on a whim - first time ever trying it. My seeds never sprouted the first try, but the second try I did good. All but one of my seedlings survived... I'm probably going to be overrun with celery. Nice to know some other things to do with it.
