Mid Week

Slowly but surely things are getting done around the garden. This week has all been about dehydrating. Of course this will continue until my herbs are done. 

This is what I have accomplished as far as herbs this week.
The picture isn't that clear. I believe there might be something wrong with my camera (it is 10 years old and perhaps getting a bit worn). Hopefully by the end of the season these bags will be full of homegrown goodness.

We netted the cherry trees this year and managed to actually keep the robins from gorging on the fruit. Still they are only three years old and not very big so the harvest wasn't that huge. 

This is the amount I managed to get off the tree that ripens a bit later.

About a third of the bucket. 

When dried this is what I ended up with.

Half a freezer bag of dried goodness. These will be lovely in baking or my oatmeal this winter.

Everybody have a wonderful evening. 

God bless.


  1. Great work with the dehydrator. I have one but never use it. I should get it out more and preserve more.

  2. I should really dry some of the herbs I grow, we don't have a fruit or vegetable garden, but I do use lots of herbs so they're great to dot around the flower beds.

  3. That's awesome that you are dehydrating the rewards from your gardens.
    The cherries look good.

  4. It's a great harvest and a brilliant way of reducing the space needed to store.

  5. Nice! I'm sure you'll appreciate all of this in the cold winter. In the meantime, stay cool and stay well, it's going to be scorcher today!
