I live in Reno, NV. We have a very short growing season. This is my first time really trying a garden. I built a big 8 ft x 3 ft box for everything. I'm starting my garden and have a lot of herbs, so I'm doing cilantro. At first it looked normal, then dried out. I got it back to life, but now it's growing back like small trees, not bushy looking at all. It's not very fragrant either. What does all this mean? Should I start over?
My basil is growing great, but I noticed it's growing flowers at the top of the plant. Is that normal?
