    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?

    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 Love To Grow Herbs

    I got interested in growing herbs when I lived in an apartment complex that had patios. There wasn't much sun in the afternoon and evening on my patio so I researched what plants would do well in those conditions. Herbs and a few flowers were ideal. I started with cat mint and it...

    I use fresh herbs while cooking
