Okay, I suppose I should have gotten more information on cilantro plants before I got into this…if I had, I might have changed my mind.
The problem with growing your own cilantro, I now realize, is that after spending MONTHS growing a plant barely big enough to put into one little thing of salsa or guacamole, THE PLANT GOES TO SEED AND DIES! Here I thought I’d have this unending source of fresh cilantro, but no.
Now I’m thinking I’ll just go back to buying from the store. 6 years ago
I suppose since I have 3 cilantro plants growing now (and 2 more seedlings sprouted), I’m going to mark this as done. They’re too small to get much use out of for the time being, but I figure they’ll only get bigger.
I’ve also, since the new year, grown tomato, tomatillo, jalapeno and serrano chili plants as well as basil, sage and garlic chives. I’m working on thyme and oregano, but after this I have to cut myself off because I’ve run out of room to put plants. 6 years ago

out of the ten batches of seeds I planted, I got four seedlings. Today the first one got it’s first real leaf! I’ll probably try to do another planting soon. 6 years ago
two of my seeds have started sprouting! 6 years ago
So it’s the new year and time to get on the ball with actually doing things on this list. I went ahead a bought one of these culinary herb kits:
So now I can see if I can actually grow this stuff. 6 years ago
Cilantro is my most-used herb and I hate buying bunches at the grocery and ending up throwing half away. It would be so much easier and less wasteful if I just had cilantro plants I could clip off of when I needed. 6 years ago
