Planting Kale and Lettuce Where Celery Was

Posted on Oct 2 2009 - 4:00am by Mike Lieberman

Since I harvested all of my celery last week, I had two containers that were empty. I wound up planting kale and lettuce in those containers.

Having the gardening itch and fall already upon us, I had to plant something.

In the one container I had a few celery plants. Some of the roots were still in the soil. When planting the kale, I did my best to plant around the roots.

The other container that had the celery had a single plant in it, but the root was pretty large. The lettuces were planted around the large root.

Not sure if the roots are going to get in the way of the kales and lettuces growing, but worth the shot. What’s the worst that’s going to happen?

Your thoughts on this are welcomed.
