August Tips


 Tip title Gather Herbs for Drying
 Text description Itching to do something in the garden but not sure what? Cut back some of your oregano or mint and dry it. In our climate you will likely have herbs year-round, but drying some can help you when times are busy, or perhaps your relatives in the mid-west would love some home-grown, dried herbs, for a holiday gift this year. Simply hang it upside down in a cool, dry place. Why not try putting some on a cookie sheet on your dashboard to make use of the hot temperatures in your car without turning on an oven or a dehydrator?
