Which herbs change taste when they bolt?
I've got overwintered oregano and cilantro that are now flowering, I'm letting the cilantro reseed in hopes of getting more later in the season when I have tomatoes and peppers. But do the leaves taste different (bad) when the plant flowers?
What about oregano (I've been trying to snip off the flowers but they got ahead of me this week and the plants are looking kind of straggly - think I need to chop them quite a bit)?
Basil is just starting to really take off (and either I got 2 kinds of seeds in 1 packet of "sweet basil" or some aren't getting enough sun, leaves are smaller) and the dill is starting to head up too - but my cukes aren't ready yet.
