The first seed starts of the year: celery. They’re even a little bit late.
Celery is so delicate. The teeny starts can either wilt in seconds without water, or fry in the sun, fragile until they’re a rather ripe old age. Two years running I’ve managed to roast the baby celeries when they were the size of threads, and restarting takes forever – such long germination – but I got a late celery crop nonetheless and it was decent. Amazing that a big clump of celery grows from one pinhead seed.
Next up, onions.
