How to Grow Cilantro for a Continuous Harvest
“Wouldn’t it be nice to have fresh cilantro growing right outside your kitchen door? Whenever you wanted to fix Mexican salsa or guacamole, or a Middle Eastern yogurt sauce for your lamb kabobs, there the lacy, sweetly pungent leaves would be, ready to harvest. But if you’ve ever tried to grow it, you’ve probably noticed that cilantro yields a fast crop; plants are barely up before they try to flower and set seeds. So those tasty leaves aren’t around long, especially in warm weather.”
My family loves adding cilantro to all sorts of dishes, and since frequently buying it at the grocery store can take a hit on the wallet, we try to grow our own. But as stated above, cilantro has a very short span of harvest time, so this method really helps to harvest cilantro whenever it’s needed.
