Spring Shares– Herbal package

Hey!  How did you like the surprise?–that little bag of herbs–What you got may have contained Sage, Hyssop, and three kinds of mints:  Lemon Mint, Peppermint, and Spearmint.   These are the herbs that are currently growing in our garden.  Wikipedia will enlighten you on their uses and history–most are medicinal and culinary, both.   We sell our herbs for $3.00 for 1/4#.  Hyssop is harvested in the Spring and Fall–We are almost done with the Spring Harvest.  The Mints grow like a weed–especially the lemon balm–and are available most of the summer.  Sage has one more week of harvest and then we’ll give it time to recover.  If you are interested in purchasing any of these items, send me an email.

We will also have Basil, Oregano, Parsley, Cilantro, Dill, and Fennel later in the season.  We use the Basil, Parsley, and Oregano in our Spaghetti Sauce kits for canners.  These are in their infancy stage right now– 

Remember to open your bags up.  Use your fresh herbs within a week–if you can’t get to them, then dehydrate them for use within the next two years.  Fresh herbs are the best, fresh dried are a good second best!
