Harvest some herbs for winter
Herbs like marjoram, mint, parsley, sage, basil, coriander, thyme and oregano are easy to grow so, if you have some, why not harvest and dry them for use over the winter? Store them in airtight containers, then you’ll always have herbs handy to add flavour to your favourite dishes, including chutneys, sauces, soups, pesto, herb butters and tapenades and teas, or you can dry the flowers to make pot pourri. Store seeds in paper bags or envelopes and freeze delicate herbs like tarragon, chives and dill in water or oil in ice cube trays.
