Farm Tips with Sara | Center for Land-Based Learning
Growing annual herbs, like parsley and dill, are super easy. But when these herbs are about to die, they do something called bolting.

All you have to do, is pull out the stalk, and the plant will redirect it’s energy into growing more useful leaves for you to eat and last longer.
