Experimenting in the kitchen does not mean cooking to me! It means anything from making candles to growing plants on the windowsill. One of the most successful kitchen experiments I've ever done was to grow (or regrow?) celery from a bunch I bought at the grocery store.

Finding the right celery plant was an accident and I didn't think of regrowing it until I saw the tiny roots on the bottom.
I cut off about an inch of the plant along with the tiny baby roots that edged the area where the it had been cut, then I placed that in a small dish and put a little water in it. I checked it every day, adding and replacing the water as was needed, and lo and behold! The tiny roots turned into bigger roots and more roots were forming!
After awhile I added some soil to the dirt. Just a little at first, then a little more, then some more until the celery was growing in the dirt.
I've tried other things, but the celery was the most fun.
