« Part 2: week four Part 3 of Herb garden series Part 4: week 8 »

I’ve been cutting herbs twice a week for a while now, and we’ve been snacking on them too. Well, sampling really.
Even the ones I’ve previously disliked are pretty tasty. Never noticed the citrusy flavor in dried cilantro – just a “soapy” quality that I’d always substitute parsley for. And fresh dill is pretty nice, just a faint aftertaste that must get amplified (and ruined) in the drying process.

I’ve got 1/4 pound of herbs! (tare weight) in the freezer! – not counting the parsley thats made its way into soup, basil into sandwiches, and mint into mohitos.

Even the day after a trim, it seems they’re already touching the light bulbs the next day.

of baggies filled with frozen herbs? or the same looking pruned herbs? I’ll get a pre-harvest one next time.
