Harvest Your Bounty!
Harvest the herbs and edibles you grown and dry them
out for later use or process them before they spoil.
Store Herbs & Spices separately or combine into blends to
use when you need them for cooking, pickling, canning, teas,
tinctures / extracts, topicals, baths, soaks or other herbal remedy.
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.
