Saturday was such a day. Yet it took two days to dry all the herbs. It is still winter and the days are short.
The herb garden.
A mixture of herbs and flowers. After drying the vivid coloured flowers remain tiny specks of colour.
Herbs and flowers dried 6.August 2010
Heartsease, Viola tricolor flowers
Coriander and Dill
Thyme and Rosemary I pick and use always fresh.
Peppermint I use also fresh to add to salads and make Peppermint tea. Basil I use fresh for Pesto and other dishes.
Dill is also used fresh.
Generally I use all the herbs also fresh.
The dried herbs I use to make herb salt.
Naturally all the herbs I grow are organically grown without pesticides.
The drying facility is home made and easy to stash away when it is not in use.
Believe it or not:
