& Pr e p a r e To dry cut herbs, gather them in small bunches and tie with twine. Hang upside down in a warm, dry place that is out of direct sunlight. Hanging herbs upside down forces their essential oils to flow down into the leaves. When completely dry, remove leaves from stems and store in a cool, dry place and crush leaves before use. Dried herbs’ flavor deteriorates over time, so don’t bother hanging onto them once you have fresh herbs growing again next season. And If you’re looking out the window and the thought of all these chores makes you want to pull the Snuggie around you even tighter, cut yourself a break. As much as it’s possible to keep things growing right now, you can continue to be a gardener without even touching the soil. Organize—inventory seeds, order seed-starting supplies, compile your garden notes. Relax and delve into your stack of catalogs and magazines. Dream big and plan an amazing spring garden. 57
