I know it's summer and you have lots of fun things planned, but if you have herbs growing in your garden, don't forget to pick some of them at their peak, bundle .. and then hang to dry. You will be so glad come winter when you can have your own supply to use for soups and stews. Today I picked lots of dill .. leaving the smaller growth and any seed heads intact to continue growing. Dill will reseed itself each year. Some of the seed heads will be picked later and used when making dill pickles. I'm off to gather some thyme.
