So today I asked Wayne to put some nails up on the porch so we can hang our herbs to dry out side. I am also going to put up some sort of drying rack in the house too. As we currently grow:
- lemon thyme
- apple mint
- lemon balm
So as I was hanging the herbs I was stung by a red wasp! Parker sprung into action getting me an ice baggie and a towel to wrap it in and we applied tea tree oil/oregano to the wound. Wayne went out and killed the wasps with the our most potent poison as a punishment for their wickedness! He also hung the dill and the sage for me as I was nursing my wounds.
So if you have herbs to preserve I recommend going to Mountain Rose Herbs and reading their very informative article and keeping a bottle of wasp spray & tea tree oil near by!
