Perhaps celery is best left to experienced gardeners in prime climates, but I have managed to get some celery that was edible enough for cooking in soups & casseroles. The celery I have grown has not developed thick stems good for fresh eating, but the small celery stems are useful for chopping and cooking, for as long as it lasts in the refrigerator or root cellar. Therefore, I only grow a couple of celery plants each year.
