I had two empty containers where I harvested my celery last week. Some of the roots were still prominent, but I still planted kale and lettuces around them. Hopefully, they’ll survive.
CleanAirGardening had a post a few weeks ago about how they used to test the pH levels of their soil back in the day – by tasting it. I took that as a personal challenge.

I won’t be posting this week because I’m going to be working on redoing the site to be more user friendly. I’ll resume back to regular posting next week.
