Okay Miss Vicky – the bad pun in the title of this posting is for YOU!
But the post is really about harvesting sage. We have a LOT of it! It smells amazing as I clip it and I’m pretty sure that breathing that fragrance truly does clear my mind 🙂
As they say, “sage advice“…
Here are photos. Yesterday I harvested a few leaves each from about 30 of our 500 plants. It was really only a slight tidying of those plants. I just clipped a few bits that were sticking up and the plants I worked with still look very full. That gave me about five full grocery bags (11 racks in the drying room). So, there’s more available for sure!
I really should do the rest – it will help the plants form a full round shape, rather than get leggy and tall.
