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…

    Before you know it you’ll have your very own heirloom, crazy fast growing pumpkins! I love the mad scientist aspect of gardening and seed saving:)

    One could never call you lazy! You seem to power through all your projects, and have a great many of them as well. 🙂

  3. Kiwi ~ Sometimes way too many…I need to just do one and finish it, then start another.

    Dutchess ~ LOL! I’ve always had an orange thumb for pumpkins. They know I love them. My precious!
