Dehydrating Garden Fresh Herbs

Today I’m sharing how I dehydrate garden fresh herbs. I do this on a weekly basis to continue to promote growth of the herbs and to grow my herbs stash when the gardening season is over.

Fun N’ Play Potting Bench

Recently I participated in a YouTube collaboration ‘Look For Less-Summer 2016’. The collaboration was hosted by Jaime, from the YouTube channel Bored or Bananas and Jaime asked us to use an inspiration piece and create that look for less.

Well. we had some wood laying around that was found roadside that was more than likely scraps form someone’s project. I found an inspiration piece on PARENTS.COM and this is what we came up with.

Gardening: Strawberry Shopping Cart

 

One of these days we’ll have enough strawberries to make at least one smoothie.  The past few years of growing one strawberry plant, we’ve come to realize that we need to grow more than one plant.  Took us long enough to realize it, right?   This year we have at least five plants growing in this thrifted shopping cart and this is only a drop in the bucket of what we need in order to reap a plentiful harvest.

Strawberry Shopping cart

 

We started off by transplanting our original strawberry plant to the shopping cart and we added a few more strawberry plants along with it.

Personally I think strawberry plants are a bit expensive.  Starting at nearly $4 per plant and in order to have a bunch of fruit you’ll need a minimum of 10 plants or more.  So, what I’ve decided to do…  plant my runners in other portions of the shopping cart so they can take root.  Otherwise,  they’ll just trail down the cart with nothing to attach to.  The little fella in this picture has taken root.
