Oh, for craps sake, you just can't eat anything these days emoticon

I have recently become very fond of cilantro and use it a LOT. My brain feels like it's going to explode trying to keep track of what to eat, and what not to. Some of us can't buy everything organic, or grow our own stuff. I give up, I don't want to live to be 100 (or 80 for that matter) anyway!

Have you tried planting them on the North side of the house or in a spot that is shady from noon on? That will slow down bolting.

I planted all my lettuces this year in the shade of my very tall cosmos and I have been picking lettuce from the same 10 plants for two months with no bolting yet. I've never had such beautiful lettuces. I didn't plant cilantro this year because of past bolting problems. Next year I will plant it in light shade and see how it goes.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

thanks for that info. We grow our own, planting it in intervals throughout the growing season, but the plants always bolt so fast that we also end up buying cilantro, too.

I control my food. I no longer let food control me.

I use alot of cilantro -- or I have used alot of cilantro in the past. I just started growing it in the back yard, so I guess that's a good thing!!! it's not available organically near me.

thanks for the information. I love cilantro. I will change to organic cilantro.

This is a learning journey... I am learning to eat healthy, to love exercise, but more important, I am learning to love myself.

It's truly a crazy world and I'm not holding my breath for it to get un-crazy. I just like to point out the craziness as a friendly gesture towards those who might benefit from knowing how to avoid some of the damage.

They get away with it because the FDA doesn't regulate chemicals unless they cause acute health (instantly noticeable and debilitating) problems. They don't ban or regulate substances that cause chronic damage that later results in disease. They get away with it because they have strong financial and political ties to big agriculture businesses that make greater profit by using toxic chemicals.

Thanks for that information.
How do growers get away with applying poisons on our food like that?
Just bought some from our local saturday organic market- we call it coriander in Australia.
So versatile to cook with, just makes food sparkle!

That is downright scary!
We started growing our own last year as we use it a lot but our puppy just dug it all up. Ugh. Guess I am replanting and buying organic til then.
Thank you so much for the info!

Wow. I use a bunch of it. I guess my garden will be getting a new infusion of Cilantro soon.

Very toxic insecticide is used on cilantro along with other bad things including some with an illegal pesticide. Don't take chances.
