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.

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.
