My Cilantro patch has been looking great, but although the weather hasn't really gotten hot yet I could see signs of bolting.

Some was put in the refrigerator for use this week. And some was dried carefully, laid out on a cookie sheet and frozen.

Frozen cilantro works well for cooking, but you can't use it like you use fresh cilantro. It will not thaw well. I may try making another sowing for summer harvests. I have never had luck with cilantro in warm weather (how do they grow it in Mexico?), but if I harvest as soon as it leafs out, it may work out.
Cilantro fresh from the garden - yummy!
I'm linking this up to the Tuesday Garden Party at An Oregon Cottage where we learn that the weather in Oregon is similar to New Jersey right now - cool and rainy.
