Herb Project: Small Wreaths for Soups

My herbs are gigantic, so any idea I read or see concerning herbs sticks in my head.  Latest and greatest is from 1,001 Ingenious Gardening Ideas, (page 204 if you’ve got the book).

  • Harvest herbs of rosemary, thyme, oregano, parsley, and chive.
  • Make sure all the herbs you harvest are between 5-8 inches in length.  You’ll want about 8-10 pieces.
  • Starting with chives, lay them out somewhat unevenly, and then twist them to make a rope that can be held together to form a 5 inch circle.
  • While holding the chives, weave other herbs throughout the circle.
  • If it goes a little rough, you can tie in some twine for reinforcement.
  • Hang up to dry; and when you’re making soup this fall, toss it in (minus any other decoration you happen to have added).
