Harvesting my Herbs

It's that thyme again!!  Herb harvesting time.

Tidy bundles of oregano, thyme, sage,  rosemary, and some freshly cut chives. I make a loop at the end of the string ties for ease in hanging.

Hanging in the storage barn to dry.  A nice, warm, dry place. My husband kindly gave up some head space for a week or so. It smells so good in there now! The next step will be to strip them from their stems, crush lightly,  and place in clean jars.

Yes, thanks for the reminder. I really need to try harder to preserve my herbs. This year I *will* hang them up to dry!

Glad I could help Robin! I had a great crop of oregano, sage, and thyme this year, but the mints were sparse.
