My garden soil does well for growing celery. However, at age 70 I need to simplify! This year I mulched my two rows with rice hulls. I know rice hulls are safe for flowers, but what about vegetables?

Yes, rice hulls are safe to use with vegetables. As with most grain hulls, they add few nutrients to the garden and are somewhat slow to decompose, but rice hulls do make an excellent soil conditioner for areas with poor drainage. Because they are light, you may want to add a layer of straw on top to help keep them from blowing away in the garden.
