Herbs

Mom has been growing and using her own herbs for many years.  I don’t remember a year where she neglected to grow these little goodies.

We also have bay leaf and chamomile.

After the herbs have been chosen, rinsed, sometimes with salt in the water, to kill the bugs, and then cut into springs or leaves. They are dried on paper towels.

Now these herbs can be dried in the dehydrator.

      Well Marty I certainly would agree with you most times but I think your mom was probably real upset about losing her herbs….she really should have been crying over the nip though!

      They are so good….sometimes we get a bit of parsley in our wet food….we only get wet food once a week or so. What I am really excited about is when mom dries our nip for the winter…the whole house smells of nip! I usually help mom so she gets it just right.

      Wow…some more Canadians….nice to meet you friends. What part of Canada are you from? It’s stinking hot out here in British Columbia….how about where you are? I get the feeling you are in Ontario. Am I right? Thanks for visiting TvKapherr, CatsattheBar & BackHomeinBromont.

      Hi Basil, We have lots of nip in the garden…mom doesn’t start drying it till fall. It was so good of you to stop by for a visit. I keep trying to get into your blog but I’m not doing so well. One of these days, I’ll just pop up when you least expect me. Hope you’re coming on the trip to the Louisiana Bayou. It should be a hoot.
