We are almost ready for the first harvest! Here is what things look like:
But all is not well in herb-land. You can see here, one of the seed pods was a dud:
It was the cilantro. No Tex Mex for me! Lintilla hates cilantro, so she thinks it’s no big loss.
My experience with herbs is limited to the spice aisle at Kroger, so I’m a little confused as to what I can do once we harvest. How long do fresh herbs keep? Do I have to immediately make dishes with basil, mint, chives, purple basil and dill? Can I put them in the fridge and keep them a while?
Anyway, Trillian and I are excited: in just a day or two, we can have baked potatoes with butter and fresh chives.
