I'm going to have to give the water storage method a try. Also Larry's hydroponic growing method.

It was only last year that I learned how long you can keep parsley in the fridge in water. Last fall I cut some herbs before the first frost and stored them for weeks in the fridge.

Indeed. The texture changes a bit, but they work fine for cooking and keep forever in the freezer. You can take out any amount you need.

You're welcome

Its one of those stupid things that make sense, and I wonder why I never tried it before. Recently its been going around the internet so I gave it a try. I was surprised how much it grew in 2 weeks. And considering if I didn't do it, the root tips probably would have got pushed to the back of the fridge, dried out, and been tossed.
