"drying herbs"
my row of dill is fading fast! the rest of my herbs are following close behind. i froze what i could... but still have enough to dry, too.

so.... late today, i pulled on my wellingtons, grabbed a few paperbags, a good knife and starting cutting.... i just love the smell of fresh dill!

i took the flower part of the dill, stuffed it into a bag, leaving the stems out and rubber banded the bag. the seeds will continue to dry and fall off inside the bag... you just need to give a good shake now and then. i'll put them in a pretty jar and sprinkle them on salads, bread and in soups this winter. (i'd like to do this with a mixed bunch too!)
