    Thyme And Coriander, Rosemary And Mint!

    These four herbs are essential in the cooking I like to do for myself. I always go have breakfast with my parents, but I often cook for myself, or my friends and use these four herbs in some way. I also grow rocket, and Swiss chard, because I like them in meals.

    I plant some cilantro

    and I already have my mint in the window. I bought the mint as a plant but I bought heirloom cilantro seed. I cannot wait to try It! Do I need to maintain a certain soil temp for the seed to germ?
