Rosemary and cilantro are ready to harvest in our culinary herb garden.
Harvest rosemary by snipping a 2-inch sprig or two with scissors. This herb pairs beautifully with many foods and is popular in Mediterranean dishes. It’ citrusy, woodsy flavor is delicious when infused in olive oil or vinegar or roasted with meats. Rosemary is thought to improve memory, and has been used as a symbol of remembrance.
We have a new bed of cilantro right next to the rosemary. Harvest by cutting stems one third of the way from the top of the plant (you can gather a handful of the herbs, and cut a third of the way down, as though giving the herbs a ‘haircut’). Please take only what you will use in a week.
