Tips on harvesting herbs for good food and your good health

For this article published in The Denver Post, I wrote about adding herbs to your garden in addition to tips on how to grow them.  Marie Peacock of Gardenz, a local landscaper, offered the following tips on harvesting herbs:
  • Harvest when oils are strongest
  • Use washed, organic herbs
  • Dry herbs easily
  • Brew an herbal tincture
  • Freshen rooms with herbs
  • Scent sweet dreams
  • Infuse oils and vinegars
