Cilantro Sproutlings

If you believe in the saying, we reap what we sow, you will like what I have done here.

I took a handful of cilantro/coriander/dhania seeds and sprinkled them in this little clay pot. I covered it loosely with soil and watered it everyday for a week.

I also made sure it got a sunny spot all through the day.

See, what I saw today!

Little Cilantro/Coriander sproutlings raising their heads up to reach for the Sun.

But the mighty Sun knows they are little babies still, so he looked at them and scattered some sunshine from above…

I can’t wait for them to grow into a full pot of herb. More later.

cooking with homegrown veggies and herbs is no doubt a great experience. try the same with methi seeds. they grows in no time and are very forgiving.

They look delish...poor babies, do they know they're going to be eaten!!!!
No seriously, how adorable...and I like your "siamese-twins" planter too!!

@Sayantani, will try the methi growing. I might just become a farmer soon. ;-)

@GB, I hope not. Who knows, they might just pout at me and I will melt.

It must be a great feeling to see the tiny herbs growing in your home. And when veggies are from one's own garden it feels good in taste and treat too.
Fresh Dhone pata gives out its own taste and flavour...
and watching them grow everday is...
