Welcome to 2012 VEGAN MOFO Day 24 - free food

Cool way to get free food by 
using what you have to get what you want.
Being an ardent fan of celery,
for my smoothies, salads and some cooked dishes,
this site's advice on growing your own organic celery 
brought great joy to my palate and purse.

Meet my new babies:
Cut about 2 inches off the bottoms of your stalks of organic celery.  Newbie on left, week-old on right.
Root in glass jar in about an inch of water, placed in a sunny window. Check water level to prevent drying out. Should be transplanted into compost-rich soil when first leaves sprout.
2 weeks old and beyond ready for transplanting. Lazy me wanted to try growing it in just water.

One of those one-armed paper hanger busy days,
so nourishment is usual morning green smoothie
apple, blueberries, celery, dates, ginger, kale, pineapple smoothie
My main man, Hugh Jazz Salad, for lunch
Romaine lettuce, apple, beets, carrots, celery, grape tomatoes, nutritional yeast, olives, orange slices,  pomegranate seeds, homemade walnut parma, E2 basics dressing
and yesterday's gumbo for dinner.

Native American Proverb
"May your life be like a wildflower, 
growing freely and joyfully in the beauty of each day."
