A Garden Update: 7 Weeks

Sad news to report in this update - the cilantro is no more. RIP Cilantro. After it started bolting there was no going back. I tried to revived it, but it wasn't working so I made the executive decision to get rid of it. I hate killing plants, but it was taking up valuable garden space!

What am I going to do with that empty space now you ask? Well, one of two things. The first option is to leave it alone for a few weeks and see if the parsley expands and starts to fill in that area. If that happens, great. If not, I will be transplanting my garlic from the individual container to give it a little more room!

Besides the sad cilantro news, everything else is doing absolutely fantastic! My basil is growing like crazy, I have about 20 jalapeno peppers growing, I can't count the number of times I've eaten my home grown lettuce, my tomato plant is just amazing and is finally giving me edible fruit - not just tons of green tomatoes.
