|Dry Sage Leaves|
I have left them in the unopened oven overnight after turning off the oven and they are lovely. I did trim off the stems before I started and rinse the well with tap water. After shaking off the water I placed them not touching between 2 layers of paper toweling and left them to dry. Leaving them whole to store I plan to crumble them as I use them. I love the look if the velvety leaves and their weathered hue.
I look to have the corner on the aloe plants and the Christmas cactus concessions in southern Indiana!
With six pots of cactus and four pots of aloe all brimming with new plants that need to be re-potted....all for another day!
Then there is the other tropical dug from my parents Florida home and the ferns and herbs I bring indoors to winter. I am thinking of trying to save a big begonia from the front to although I have not have much success in those attempts!
Many are in hanging pots which is another space savings! These cacti will bear huge fuchsia blossoms about 3-4" in length in the dead of winter which brightens my days!
Note: I do spray all of these plants well with a home and garden bug spray before bringing them inside.
So glad this chore is done. Until tomorrow then.
