We have about 6 Cilantro plants growing in our garden and it comes back with no help at all year after year. I'm almost sure we have a little bit of Cilantro every single day in our meals. It's good and good for you!
It doesn't have to be done all at once. It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!
