Received my new dehydrator! Now, I'm ready to preserve all the lovely spring herbs growing in my garden before the Texas heat gets to them first. Last night when I returned from herb class, I walked around the property gathering henbit. Henbit is so misunderstood. So many gardners view this lovely purple flowering plant as a weed and a royal pain to deal with. As I picked the plants, I noted their lovely purple flowers with white and purple spotted throats. So very cute. Now, they are dehydrated and marinating the grapeseed oil I have them in. This will be one of my ingredients in the salves and lotion project I have. Next up....cleavers.
