I was able to plant my herbs in my square foot garden on Monday, before the rains came in. My veggies will have to wait another day.
I expanded my herbs this year. I have always planted parsley and rosemary, but this year I added a few more. Along with those two, I have dill, thyme, basil, oregano, pineapple sage, and lemon verbena. A few of them are labeled 'tender' perennial, so we'll see next year if they make it through the zone 6 winters.
I want to preserve some of the herbs for the fall and winter. I don't know much about drying and preserving herbs, so I'm going to need to do a little reading on the subject. I'll be sure to write about it.
I found the cute little ceramic herb markers at a yard sale. I have seen them in stores for several dollars a piece. I think I paid $2 for all 5 markers.
What herbs do you grow in your garden? How do you preserve them? Let us know in the comments.
