    Well, we appear to share at least one gene, Daniel.

    That is quite a striking shade of indigo.

    lues are very difficult to capture…is that a true color? Whether it is or isn’t, it’s really nice.

    didn’t know there was a gene for cilantro soap,ha!

    When I first tried it, and the next dozen or so times after that, I also thought cilantro tasted like soap. Being a determined “chef”, I found that I just couldn’t leave cilantro out of every dish that called for it, so I just used it in smaller quantities than called for in the recipes. Today, I enjoy cilantro regularly (in normal quantities) and I can no longer understand why I ever thought it tasted like soap. I guess I can say that cilantro grows on you : )

    Me thinks this plant needs a huge red-orange boulder behind it to make it pop for photography. That or a silvered out dead tree laying on it’s side.

    I agree with Anna. The first time I had cilantro in various dishes at an Indian restaurant in Kingston, I wondered where the heck the soapy taste was coming from. Now I love the herb, and happily use it quite frequently. Probably more than parsley, as a matter of fact.

    Coincidentally, I was recently lured into buying some pipicha seeds from Chiltern’s. They sounded interesting, so I took a whirl and got some. I am now looking forward to growing them even more!
