Before our first overnight freeze back in September, I harvested as much of my lavender and rosemary as possible and every sprig of mint I could reach. I put some rosemary in bottles of vinegar with fresh peppercorns and placed the bottles in the window for sunlight to make rosemary-infused vinegar. The rest of the herbs were left to dry, heavenly scenting my kitchen with such a pleasant aroma.
The Sunday before the annual craft fair at the office where I work, I mixed the dried lavender, rosemary and mint in bottles with a touch of orris powder to make potpourri. I did not use gloves. My hands smelled of the refreshing herbs for the next two days. Oh, darn! :)
