I harvested the lemon mint today! I did not cut it all today. I left a few stalks to go to seed so I can sell it this fall in the seed store.
It makes great tea and spice for cooking! I especially like lemon with chicken.
I rinsed it and laid it out on a screen for drying. I might hang some herbs to dry this year too. I do have the wire strung under the porch roof just for that purpose but this is drying on a screen. I will turn it a few times every day.
I collect large screens whenever I find them at garage sales and so forth. They are a great way to dry herbs, flowers and seeds!
