Time of Harvest...

This is a great time of year for harvesting and drying herbs, 
& one of my favorite ways to prepare for the upcoming season!

Some tips I find to be the most helpful...

  • Harvest before they flower!
  • Late morning cut... Allow the morning dew to dry

  • Trim.  Gently cut healthy branches from plants, & remove leaves at the bottom.
  • Bundle!  Usually, 4 to 6 branches seem to be best when tied together.
  • Twine... using an organic twine string, carefully tie the bundle.
  • Hang upside down in a location that is drywell ventilated, & preferably away from sunlight.

Happy Harvesting!
