Drying Herbs

I have a small dehydrator I have kept going just about every day this summer.  Mint, parsley, chamomile, thyme, oregano, lavender, rosemary, tarragon, basil and whatever else I feel like makes its way in. I realized this week it is a simple enough job that I can hand it all over to the kids. They feel accomplished now and will be proud to pull out the jars when we need them in the winter.

Then again, handing it over to the kids means I have one less excuse to sit in the shade under our apple tree.

Every year I have needed more parsley than I've grown. This year I did it correctly.
