question ...

lindaruzicka(Z6 PA)September 27, 2008

does anyone know how to dry and store herbs? Now, Im talking about a very very small harvest (thanks to my parlsey-basil eating dog) but you know, I grew the plants and by gum, I want to harvest them.."L".

Sorry Linda, I am clueless, but I'll bet there are several pros over at The Harvest Forum.
They will likely want to know how you are drying them...dehydrator, sun, hanging(?), if that is even an option.

Enjoy your small and precious harvest.

I usually just cut mine, tie them together and hang them either from the ceiling in my kitchen or in a window. They seem to do well that way, but I'm sure as Sue suggested, that the Harvest Forum, or the Herbs forum would have more ideas.

I think there are a lot of folks who have not discovered GW outside of maybe the Seed X, Plant X, and the Winter Sowing Forum.

There is a link at the top of every page that will take you to a list of the Garden, Home, or Nature Forums. I love lurking and posting a bit at a lot of them. I have about 30 forums saved to my GW-FAVS folder.

Is that anything like a "know it all" or more like a resident busy body...LMAO

Believe it or not, there are only 3 forums that I am resident busy body at. Can anyone guess what they might be?

I gotta watch myself at forums where I am not a regular...don't wanna sound like a "know it all."

Question for you Linda.

I always thought that when you signed your posts "L" it was just Linda abbreviated.

Then I noticed one signed "S" and another signed "G". What, might I ask, is that all about.

Sue...who asks stuff so she can hopefully know it all.

I believe it stands for expressions, Sue. Am I right, Linda? I'm thinking Laughs, Smiles, Grins?
