This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

celeriac

celeriac IMG_0537

It's the first time I've grown a good sized celeriac. This one is softball size. I've never had one bigger than a baseball before. I gave them more space. I guess they like to spread out their roots. I put 3 or 4 in a row - about a foot or so apart. And compost, lots of compost.

What do you do with it once you harvest it? I do not believe I have ever eaten it. Lis

Celeriac can be used with potatoes. Slice it with potatoes in a casserole, use it in soup. I most often cube it and use in with roasted winter vegetable like carrots, potatoes, squash, etc. it has a wonderful celery/potato flavor. I love it!
