Fresh cilantro is scarce in stores all of the sudden. All I could find is one of those little potted cilantro plants in the produce section. I took it out of the plastic and gave it some water. It's perking up a bit but it's still rough looking.

Anything I can do to help it along or are these things kind of a scam? Also, any tips on plucking the leaves one serving at a time without killing the plants?

L-l-look at you bar-bartender, a-a pa-pathetic creature of meat and bone, un-underestimating my l-l-liver's ability to metab-meTABolize t-toxins. How can you p-poison a perfect, immortal alcohOLIC?

My experience is keeping cilantro going sustainably is way harder than other herbs. You can try just cutting off the top third to half or so, but it will go to seed in the blink of an eye. It grows pretty quick so if that happens just let it go and replant itself.

what did the roots look like when you took it out of the plastic and how big was the pot it came in? replanting with good soil in a bigger pot may give it some room to expand and grow leaves. also i snip my herbs with little scissors, which in my mind feels less traumatic for the plant than tugging the leaves/stalks out.

I have no idea what the roots look like and the pot it came in is minuscule. I'll accept that re-potting it the best option but I don't have any of the stuff to do that. Sorry cilantro.

Instagram has done so much loving harm to the idea of food. It has gotten so bad lately that when friends suggest new places to eat to me I have to subtly tease out whether they want to go because the pictures look nice or because someone actually tasted the food and liked it.

there's a bougie place in my town suffering from Insta-itus, their latest abomination is a foot tall Takis-breaded chicken sandwich with kimchi, jalapeno beer cheese, and a Hot Cheeto bun. there's a knife stabbed into the bun, like a folding BUDK style redneck dad knife. it's way too many utterly incompatable flavors and it physically looks oversaturated. it looks like a bad photoshop.

But I saw a sweaty dude in black latex gloves saw it in half and show me the insides so I must have it.

Plants are, generally speaking, not a scam. Unless it's the famous Mozambique Scam Plant but nominative destiny already sorted that one for you.

there's no way it doesn't just taste like "red, coated in gummy cheese."
