Shoulda woulda coulda 

I likely could have pulled this cilantro when it bolted.

And probably should have when the flowers were spent and the plant limp and scraggly. 

But, I thought, what about the coriander seeds? 

And so I waited. 

The tribe of lady bugs are ever present, and likely ever grateful that wait I did.

    Brilliant! But I apparently am not so. I cut them down. Forgot about the yummy edible seed.

    PS – one of our favorite Shel S passages. Know it by heart!!
