How much Cilantro?
I have been asked by a local Mexican restaurant to grow Cilantro for them. The owner/chef says he uses about "90 bunches" of cilantro every week. With that information, how much should I grow?
My herb farm has raised rows roughly 2.5 feet by 30 feet, and I have 5 rows vacant for the cilantro. I sowed 2 rows full at about 3'' spacing for the seed, and I was planning on sowing another row in 2 week, followed by another 2 weeks later and finally one more 2 weeks later...rotating and re-sowing as needed.
Does this sound like it will be enough, not enough, too much...?
Also, how much should I charge for the cilantro given that he buys 90 bunches a week?
How many "bunches" are in a pound?
These are a lot of questions, but any help would be very appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your input!
