Looking for Magic:  Cilantro

By Sharon
September 24, 2012

The scent of cilantro didn't impress me a few years ago. I planted it in my garden as a border plant only because I loved the look of its lacy foliage. Funny how a few years can make a huge difference. Aunt Bett always said, 'Look for the magic that hides in plants, look real close and you'll find it." Here's my take on cilantro now; I looked for the magic.

I recently found this article on another way to grow cilantro to circumvent its tendency to bolt. As the article says it really is a cool weather crop.


Thanks for another wonderful article, Sharron!

Gone But Not Forgotten

That's about the only way it works for me if I want fresh cilantro any time after May. I can't keep up with those that are planted in the garden because of summer heat and this year, the drought. Most of the time I just leave what's planted along the edges of my beds alone, let it go.

Thanks for the link, glad you found it.
