Did you happen to notice the new 'search this blog' box on the right hand side? It's new. I put it there because my neighbor Lisa complained I didn't have one. It was too much work to google "Homesteading on the Homefront" + whatever it was she was searching for. I was all proud of myself this morning when I told her I'd added it just for her. She quickly burst my bubble by saying "Lately it's all about chickens and bees. I can't do anything with chickens and bees."
Cue the Lemon Balm.
I'm heading up to the Heritage Harvest Festival at Monticello on Friday, and part of my preparations include getting ready for the Old Time Seed Swap on Saturday. I figured I'd harvest the seeds from my two lemon balm plants. Except I could find NOTHING online about the best (er, 'easiest') way to do it. So this is the method I came up with and I'm pretty happy with it.
About this time of year, the plants will bolt and the seed pods will dry up and turn these beautiful plants into eyesores.
