August 31, 2007, Newsletter Issue #124: When To Harvest Herbs

Tip of the Week

Harvest herbs you want to store or preserve on a warm, sunny day when the dew on the leaves has dried. Use sharp clippers to cut your herbs to avoid bruising leaves or stems and store the cut herbs in a basket or paper bag until you get home.

Never pick herbs when it is damp or very humid, as they may spoil before you can process them. For the same reason, donít pick more than you can comfortably process on the same day.

Culinary herbs that you plan to use straightaway can be picked at any time.
