I am happy to say that tomorrow the back hoe will come back and ALL the trenches that are dug up to lay down the irrigation lines is going to be filled. That will make working in the garden and getting around the homestead sooooooo much easier. ((happy dance)) Now, for "how to freeze or dry your herbs bounty". [o=
It's that time a year when you can preserve your herbs from the garden, excess of friends gardens, or deals you get at the farmers market or grocery store. Here are some neat videos I found to demonstrate different ways to preserve your bounty.
Here I am drying mint, oregano ( hiding in the left side of the picture) and carrot tops for the winter.
But I also have one other way I like to freeze herbs that I would like to share. I couldn't find a video to demonstrate to you which I have been using for years. I like to take my cilantro, basil, parsely or dill ( for example) and I rinse them and flash freeze them by throwing them in a freezer bag and squish all the air out and quickly zip up the freezer bag and toss into the freezer. That way all throughout the winter you can pull your herb bag out and cut off what ever amount you need and use it as fresh herbs.
Make sure to watch both videos because they show different information.
I love watching the Garden Girl videos. [o=
