Seedlings are germinating, and the fruit trees are blossoming, herbs are growing - other than that there is not really much growing in my garden and not much being harvested other than the mint that is running riot in the garden plot. I am pulling it out, here and there and trying my best to control it.
My mother dries her mint herb on the window sill and when dried she rubs them between her hands, so to remove the dried leaves from the stem. The dried mint herb is then transferred to a glass jar for when she wishes for some mint tea. Well, I have mint tea today, but its fresh mint tea enhanced with a little honey. Simples.
I am sharing this with Daphne and Dandelions who is hosting Harvest Monday; and Karen at Lavender and Lovage for Cooking with Herbs Challenge.
