We’ve had painters hanging around , well, not really hanging around, they are actually painting the exterior of the cottage. Anyway, one of them told us he was so inspired by our deck garden, that he went home last weekend and planted one for himself. He asked all kinds of questions about what we planted. He also wanted to know what the celery was, LOL! Pretty cool feeling to think we inspired someone!

As for the cut end of the celery, I planted as an experiment, it has sprouted leaves! Beautiful colored, tightly growing, full of new energy leaves! I also planted a couple of leeks the same way, they have taken off, too. Actually, I couldn’t remember what they were until I remembered having made asparagus soup the week before! Good thing I blog what we eat, LOL! We’ll see if there is enough to harvest or not, the verdict is still out, on that.

And check out the volunteer strawberries that are still making their way up through the rocks at the edge of the deck.  Determined little boogers!

Not too shabby of a start!
