ABC Wednesday - H is for Herbs


H is for Herbs..........

basil on a drying tray

This herb is my most favorite.
And this year's harvest will be the best I have ever had.
Basil - so fragrant and delicious.
I love to grow it, harvest it, dry it, use it in many dishes, and best of all, smell it.
Doesn't this look like a lot of it?
I had four trays of it in the dehydrator, so you think I wouldn't run out each year.

But this is what it looked like after it dried,
And once it is de-stemmed and crushed up - there is very little of it.
I will be harvesting my crop in the next week or two - I like to let it grow as long as I can.
My house will smell so good as it dries!


This is the ninth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.
