I got Susan's tip about how to keep it from tasting bitter. But as growing advice, my plants are looking very healthy and each has about 6-8 main stalks. However there are a number of side growths, thin stalks, coming from the root. Should I remove these to maintain strong growth for the main stalks?

Tie growing celery stalks together to keep them from sprawling.
Pick the stalks whenever you want. Young celery is as good as the mature product.
Harvest stalks from the outside in. You may begin harvesting when stalks are about 8 inches tall.
