Harvesting Herbs

May 18, 2012 at 6:00 am 1 comment

Today I harvested oregano, tarragon, and lemon verbena from our parcel. Oregano is a must have in any herb garden because of its savory taste and fresh aroma. The tarragon is a zesty perennial herb that is used in french cooking and is great in eggs.  Lemon verbena is a favorite herb in Argentina; we have one in our parcel that we harvest for making tea.  During the peak season our herbs produce more than we can use each day so we dry the excess and save some for the winter.  Oregano, thyme, lemon verbena, marjoram, mint, and rosemary can be preserved this way.
