Our local store had celery to plant in the garden and so I did this
year. However, I am not sure what to look for to determine if it is
ready or not. I was told by someone that it is similiar to carrots
and that the celery itself would grow underground, I was told by
someone else that isn't the case. In any case, I am not seeing what
looks like celery under the ground or above it. Any thoughts?
The stalks will be growing above ground though if they are not kept in a
moist environment they may not produce well.
There is a type of celery called "cutting celery" that does not produce
stalks...the leaves are used in salads.
When I have bought celery seedlings, they looked like little tiny
And they all grow above ground.
When they are ready, they look just like a celery bunch that is
available from the local supermarket.
Perhaps you aren't giving it enough time? These things take
weeks and weeks.

That could be, although they've been in the ground for a couple months
now. With it being the middle of August I was thinking we don't have
a ton of time left as far as vegetables producting goes. But I'm new
to the celery aspect of this so am not real sure.
