Drying and hanging my herbs

My herbs are getting a bit leggy, so I decided to give them a bit of a trim. I have beautiful thyme which is my favourite herb and also some oregano which has started to flower. With oregano it’s best to eat it before the flowers but you can still eat it. The flowers are edible and can look pretty in salads.

I can see on both plants that there is new growth underneath so I am hopping it will fill out nicely.

I had some yellow butchers twine in my stock so took some cuttings and wrapped them up, I used a slip not to tie them so they can be hung upside down to dry.

I don’t have a drying rack but watch this space because I have an idea.

I plant to have a net drying rack in the future like my godfather’s kitchen.

At the moment they are drying on a hook on the kitchen.

My rosemary has rooted from a cutting so next year I will be able to dry this as well. My bay cutting didn’t root so I will try again but I may just have to bite the bullet and buy one.

I am really enjoying cultivating herbs and drying them. I can’t wait to see them hanging on their rack when I get round to making it.
