Some things I do because the flowers are so lovely. Like this cilantro now in full bloom. Can't wait for the corriader seeds to develop. I like to eat the seeds green on salads and when dried, they self seed here every year. I also harvest the seeds for the corriander.

Very attractive. I have never grown this, I don't have a big space, only three 4 X 8 foot raised beds, so i have to be pretty choosy what I plant. We eat everything before it bolts *smile*. I do have a clump of garlic chives, however, in one of my flower beds, and I grow it for it's lovely white flowers in late summer/early fall. It too seeds everywhere. I also collect the seeds - so if anyone wants any - send me an e-mail!

Some for flowers
Some for seed
Some for pods
What other reason would I need?

Long live open-pollinated varieties!



Here are some carrot seed pods I harvested in the fall of 1999. A friend gave me one dried umbel when we moved into town off the mountain in July that year, and I allowed some to go to seed. The seed is almost gone now, but the dried umbels would still add to an arrangement.

Oh, I'm surprised. Cilantro is the most used herb in the world. The dried seed is called Coriander and used extensively in Indian food. The fresh leaves are used also in Mexican food, Indian food, and extensively throughout Asia. It is sometimes referred to as "Chinese Parsley".

I'm not fond of cilantro- at least not lots of it in a recipe but I love the flowers, Greg!
