Community Herb Garden at St. John Neumann School
Stop by St. John Neumann School, by the outdoor classroom and help yourself to herbs from the SJN Community Herb garden.
The Herbs that are currently growing, or that will be planted for this season include:
Basil, Oregano, Peppermint, Rosemary, Sage, Tri-Color Sage, Tarragon, Lemon Balm, Thyme, Bee Balm, Scallions, Cilantro, and Dill.
-Always use scissors to harvest your herbs, Do Not Use Your Fingers.
-Trim herbs with a diagonal cut, Never straight across
-Harvest leaves from the bottom of the plant first, then work your way up
-Put freshly cut herbs in white paper towel. At home store herbs in the white paper towel in the fridge with the ends taped shut.
This will keep the herbs fresh longest. But once they have been in the fridge long enough, they will dry out
and then you will have dried herbs to use.
