Where the Wild Cilantro Blooms

I only had to plant cilantro the first year.
Since then, I've let it go to flower
(those tall white flowers, above)
and it roams about the garden,
coming up in a new spot each year,
lush and fragrant.

The tall yellow flowers are mustard
that also went to seed
and roamed last year.

The onions are blooming...
and yes, I know they have
a major crabgrass problem.
I'll get right on that.

All in all, got a late start
on the summer crops.
Friends are already
reeling in squash and such.
But come August
we'll be eating well, I hope.

Have the last peas of the spring
all shelled and cooked
and ready to incorporate
into supper tonight.
