Starting cilantro from seed

Who knew how easy it would be? Herbs from seeds can be tough - with the exception of basil, which is always easy from seed, and chives, which seem to seed well every year. I used to HATE the taste of cilantro; now, I kind of like it. It's so popular now that I grow it to feed friends and family. Last week, I started a pot under the grow lights in the indoor garden room. It is growing like mad. No problems. In a week or so, I'll put it outside, in a semi-shaded area, under a glass cloche. A week or so after that, the cloche will come off, it will move to full sun, and hardy cilantro will be on its way. I love all forms and functions of gardening, but growing from seed is the best.
