Our favorite garden blogger, Margaret Roach of A Way To Garden, is spearheading a fun summer event called Summer Fest 2009 — a celebration of summer gardening, cooking, and fresh food.
One of the first entries in the first week of this cross-blog celebration is Margaret's own tip for storing herbs. She offers two different ways to freeze and preserve a whole summer's bounty of parsley and other herbs. One way was familiar to us, but the other way was something new! She explains how to tightly bundle your herbs inside a plastic bag, then roll them up into a log. We like this way of doing it; it looks easier than than other ways of preserving fresh herbs. Take a look at all her instructions here:
