We have so much cilantro in the Keyhole garden that we’re having trouble eating and/or giving it away (and I live in an area of the U.S. where Cilantro is used in everything).

The end of winter is fast approaching and some of it is start to bolt. Rather that let it all go to seed, I cut the plants back to the first set of leaves, bundled up the cut plants and hung them to dry.

If you’re not familiar, fresh cilantro is quite strongly scented. The entire front half of the house currently smells like the world’s largest salsa bar (i.e., delicious!).

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
