Harvesting Rosemary

This week I walked through my herb garden and harvested some of the rosemary that had become overgrown during the summer. I try to keep them trimmed and in check before they start to sprawl across the walk way. Cutting back the older rosemary a bit gave me a good sized bunch to dry for cooking. After it has been washed I like to set it out in a basket in the shade to air dry. This crop of dried rosemary will be fresh for holiday cooking, not only for myself, but there will be plenty to pack into little glass jars and give to friends about the time Halloween comes around.
