Herb Harvest, 2011



Justin & I went to the garden today to harvest herbs for winter. I would guess that in total we had a couple pounds. We also picked up about 7lbs of tomatoes and 3 more lbs of tomatillos, which have already been processed and are in the freezer waiting to please us at a later date.

Everything except the lavender is going into the dehydrator. The lavender I’ll be using to make sachets for my drawers, because recently I had the most unfortunate collision between a sweater and my nose.  I may throw some sage in the  sacks, too.

Harvest is one of my most favorite seasons. The weather is unbelievably pleasant, all the fruits and vegetables are begging to be eaten and the mornings and evenings are cool enough to bake. It’s so nice to smell bread rising and baking that it makes me wonder why more people don’t do it.

So here’s to a lovely harvest moon on this beautifully-scented September evening.
