The other day (as previously announced) I harvested cilantro seeds. This was my year’s surprise. When I had planted the cilantro outside on my balcony it was already pretty week, had been having yellow leaves for a couple of weeks already. But then suddenly outside it exploded! It grew quite a big bush and I was able to harvest many seeds which are now drying for next year to be planted!
I have a small book on herbs which read to pull the whole plant and cut the seeds to then have them dried. However, I only cut the seeds because the plant was still in blossom and growing more seeds.
