Cilantro...Also known as Coriander. Cilantro is a quick and easy green for the garden. It adds amazing flavor to everything you add it to. It is a short season herb and is done in about 5 weeks, with full seed formation by 12 - so plant some every few weeks for fresh cilantro through the summer. Notice the little seed hull clinging to the first leaves. Below, some dew kissed luck of the Irish...Calendula...I love the deep colors in these frosty days of spring.

We were blessed with a good dose of rain, and it is beginning to feel very springlike. Today started out foggy and cold. It cleared up eventually but didn't really warm up, which is my favorite working weather.The moon is full on this, the first eve of spring. I'm grateful for the returning light.
