As I said in my previous post the weather turned very chilly here on the South Gulf Coast.
The temps dipped into the 20's over night and I would surly have lost my potted herbs and tomatoes. They all came inside for the past two days, lined up along the front hallway.
It was time to harvest some of the Sage, Basel and Parsley.
I love to cook with fresh herbs and dry mine all year. I cut the stems and hang them upside down in the window mostly but there is not much space, so some get cut and placed in pie tins for a few days. It really does not take long to dry when snipped with scissors into tiny pieces. I just leave them to air dry for a few days, then store in jars.
Once the potted plants were thinned they went back in the hallway and will stay until the temperatures rise above 50' during the night.
The aroma in the kitchen is wonderful. I love the look of the drying herb plants also. Wish I had more room to hang them. How about up in the rafters? But then I don't have rafters and besides, they would get greasy from all the cooking, don't you think?
One day, I will have a green house!
