Fresh Herb Bouquets

Fresh Cut Herbs

The only thing that hasn’t been done in by the frost is my herbs and I didn’t waste any time rescuing them. They are planted in a raised bed garden, close to the house and get the radiating heat off the logs, making them hang on a little longer than the flowers. I was afraid to take my chances any longer so yesterday I got out my trusty garden nippers and gave the herbs a hair cut (for those of you who don’t know, I used to be a stylist back in the day so any time I trim anything I call it “giving it a haircut”.



I figured while I was at it I may as well make them into a pretty arrangement. I put each variety into a different blue mason jar and lined them up on a vintage grain sack in the center of the dining room table. Not only are they functional for cooking they make a pretty table arrangement.


Fresh Herbs

I sure hated the thought of the frost getting them, and am pleased I had the idea of bring them inside. I need to thin the herb garden come spring it grew so much this past season that there is little room for any growth next year. I normally put out a Facebook notification for takers of divided herb plants, so far every year my divisions have went to a new gardeners home. It’s a great way to trade and get rid of things that are overtaking the garden space.
