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.

What a great idea. Thanks!

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.
