The herb garden

 Left over herbs from last fall have sweetened dramatically with the cold weather.  Have you ever had sweet cilantro?  I hadn't until yesterday.  It still tastes like cilantro, but is not sharp.  The dill is fresh tasting, like freshly cut grass or clean laundry.

Remember the low tunnels from last year?  I won't be looking at germination again this year, but I've set one up to jump start germination and growth of greens.  Despite the low temperatures, the greenhouses are warm - as long as the sun is out.
