My herb garden is doing quite well this year. Yesterday, I harvested some basil, cilantro, oregano and thyme.
I bundled them and hung them up to dry on a vintage clothes drying rack I’ve been using for my herbs for quite a few years now–a great thrift store find!
This morning I went out and cut some more herbs for a nice herbal floral arrangement. It not only looks pretty, but smells wonderful!
I also cut garlic scapes this morning. They are edible, but I prefer to use them in a fun arrangement and they make the kitchen smell great.
Cutting the scapes also provides a benefit to the still growing garlic bulbs by sending the plant’s energy into the bulb instead of the ‘flower’ or scape. By mid-July the garlic bulbs will be ready to harvest. 🙂
