Drying Herbs and Pepper Seeds from the Garden

Well…I putzed out front for the first time in a while ~ pulling weeds and looking at the flowers when lo and behold! When the heck did that Italian Parsley plant get so big?! Holy Moly!

I cut a lot off of it ~ brought a grocery bag full of it to work and hung three bags up to dry. I also cut back my Thyme plant to hang for drying. Basil will be hanging up there pretty soon too.

I’m very happy with how my peppers have be growing in the garden so I’ve cut open a few to harvest their seeds. Also cut open the last of my New Mexican Hatch chile peppers so I can grow them next spring. Along with a pumpkin that grew faster than the rest…

My dad came up last month with a box full of stuffus…inside were 3 boxes of these great little jars. I’m using them to store all my dried herbs and seeds. Below is what I dried last month just to see if it would turn out…
