herb harvest

It’s time to put gardens to bed so I say goodnight to my herb garden. You gave us such good meals all summer long. Three different kinds of basil on our tomato salads, parsley for the chimichurri on our steaks and fresh mint in our mojitos.

I harvest and freeze the fresh herbs so that this winter we can smell and taste the summer again.

Millie must have liked the smells in the herb garden because she liked sitting there when I weeded.

I then popped out the herb cubes and put them in a plastic bag in the freezer. Now I say hello to Fall.
