Herbs & Edibles

Harvest plants during the mid-morning, after the dew has dried and before the heat of the day starts.

Use a basket or other containers and sharp scissors or a knife. Collect your herbs in bundles and wrap in twine for hanging until dry.

Label & Date herbs so you are 100% sure of what you are consuming.
