Dude, Massive Herbage!

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

I was weeding my garden the other day, and I am rather pleased with the results…Especially the herbs! I have a large amount of thyme, oregano, lavender and mint.  The mint I use on a regular basis and I am not too concerned with thinning it.  The others, however, are truly out of control. If you are having similar issues with your herb garden, you can cut it back and thin in out, but what to do with all of the lush, perfumed harvest.

One thing I do, is bundle them together with some kitchen string at the stems, and hang them to dry. After about two months, you can then pick the dried leaves and store them in a jar to use throughout the winter.

Green Thumb, Apparently

So I was watering my garden and I am really pleased with the results thus far.  I am excited to get some lettuce as soon as this weekend. I also don’t really mind all of the maintenance I usually hate.  I am speaking of course of the weeding.  I am really hoping to have a bountiful harvest this year and I am thoroughly excited to eat vegetables I have grown.

Melon Season(ing)

Tip:

Lightly season fresh cut melon with salt and fresh ground white pepper. It will draw out the natural sugars(the flavor) from the fruit.
