Growing Celeriac

17 May 21 Hazel (New Zealand - temperate climate)
I planted out celeriac from Mitre10 in Jan or early Feb. I've harvested 6 huge balls in the last 4 weeks and wish I had more. They have been very worthwhile, didn't take a lot of space, got good watering and their companions were runner beans, lettuce and silverbeet. My soils are quite light in coastal Oamaru. They have made a most delicious soup. I mashed the first of the harvest but found it a bit watery as a mash. If you are following a low carb or keto diet I think this veg would be very worthwhile.
