I have lost my celery seeds - irritating because I just bought them from Fedco and haen't been able to locate them for 2 weeks. DH is going to check walmart on his way home, but would anybody be interested in trading for some? I have tons of other seeds I'd be happy to trade for and could send a list. I don't want the celery seed spice, I want to grow the celery you eat with peanut butter. I had the Utah kind if that is any help. I want oh 30 seeds if possible.
You know as soon as someone sends some in the mail you'll find the ones you lost! LOL!
I've never grown celery, is it hard?

no, it is not hard - me finding it is why I haevn't bought any to replace it. I am on a very tight budget and feel silly telling dh I want to buy more celery seed LOL. He wouldn't begrudge me anything, but he's been anal about not spending even pennies to get on board with me, so for me to need to replace something . . . *G*
You know the celery seed "spice" will grow celery, if it's in whole seed form, and not ground up. And I think it's even the Utah 430 (whatever the number is), because that's the variety most often grown commercially. So if you have celery seed in your cupboard, try pre-germinating some to see if it's still good, and then plant it if you get root sprouts.

Found out that the celery seed in the store is wild celery or smallage because it produces way more seeds than traditionally grown celery so I can't substitute it. It won't produce the nice green stalks. So I'm stuck trying to figure out where to get it from as the closest is 90 miles away!
Ooops, sorry. They have the same Latin name. I grew some from seed in my first garden here, and it was spice seed, but I don't remember where I got it. And I honestly don't know if it would have turned into regular celery or not because the rabbits kept cutting it back. It looked like regular celery. Somebody once told me that I could grow just about any spice by just planting the seeds, but I guess that somebody didn't know about celery.

I have some celery I'd be willing to trade, but unfortunately I planted all my Tall Utah 52/70 earlier this year, to grow seed. I have other types I could trade - Giant red re-selection, and Zwolsche Krul. I also have celeriac, but that wouldn't help you. They are from Baker Creek seeds. The red is just like the Utah, only red stalked. The Zwolsche is more like an herb; very strong. Wish I had some of the tall Utah left for you!
claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
