We have… cilantro??

 

I love the smell of rosemary. At one of our prior homes, the previous occupant had planted rosemary and mint, and both of the plants were huge. I loved it.

So, when I happened to come across rosemary seeds at my local home improvement store, I bought them. I was planning to plant only heirloom seeds, but I caved in and bought these seeds anyway. My reasoning was that, since we rarely cook with rosemary, this plant would be purely ornamental. Lame excuse, I know.

I planted the rosemary seeds… or what I thought were rosemary seeds over a month ago. As the plant started sprouting, I thought to myself “That doesn’t look like rosemary”. It continued to grow and it is indeed NOT rosemary, it’s cilantro! I pulled off a leaf and it is very tasty cilantro, but not at all rosemary. I’ve never had this happen before. Have you?

 

 

The goods news is that we do a LOT of cooking with Cilantro! I now have rosemary growing as well.

 

 

Happy Planting,

    I’ve never had that happen before! I’m glad you like cilantro. We’re growing it this year too, in fact we’re making sure we have a salsa garden planted. Too bad I don’t have enough room to grow the corn, we could make our own chips too.
