Great to know that it is a biennial! I'll have to give a little thought to where I plant those seeds today.

parsley is a biennial

leaves first year, leaves (not many) and seeds the second year.

I use the leaves, seeds and the root the second year.

I sprinkle some of the seeds on the ground for next years plants as well.

seeds?

That is hard core. I throw money at the problem - you know buy little plants at the garden store and then kill them when I get home.

My parents do the seed thing. They're coming down this weekend I should quiz them about this. I remember that they would leave a zucchini on the vine and let it get huge then stick it on top of the fridge to dry out for seeds. Is it really that easy?

Does parsley come back again?

I've got my seeds ready to plant and was going to stick them in my "re-plant each year" section.

parsley seeds germinate better with a chill. I either plant mine in the fall or put the seeds in the fridge for a couple of days.

I don't know tarragon. Sorry

I have all these herbs growing in neat little pots on my porch. I'm really trying to get better about actually using them. I've put rosemary into chicken, oregano into pasta, and cilantro into fajitas.

So yesterday I needed some parsley. I went out to the porch with my handy herb cutting scissors and - no parsley. REALLY? Of all the herbs how could I have missed that one?

I actually have some from last year in the flower bed, but I know for a fact that the dog has nailed it and I'd rather not have the added ingredient in my soup.

off to the garden store

also, it is just me or does the Texas Tarragon and the Mexican Tarragon look like exactly the same plant?
