Parsley and Isadora
The bees were not the only work this weekend. The amazing flat leaf parsley that grows under the blueberries was getting ready to go to seed. You can tell this is coming when the plant begins to put out a thick, elongated, central stem - this will be the seed stalk. So, I went to work, harvesting all the fresh smelling, dark green leaves from around the stem, leaving it to go to seed to start next year's parsley plants! Here you see the beautiful parsley, the stems left behind, and the pile of leaves only that I clipped off the stems, rinsed, and and now preparing to dry. I love the smell of fresh parsley!
