Before they flower and early morning. Try to keep them from flowering if you can keep up.

when is the best time to harvest herbs?   By time I mean time of day, and at what point in the growth cycle

Hi Deb ... I am available for additional info if you like as I am a practicing herbalist.

I am currently taking a course to get my national herbalist certificate.  I have been studying about 20 hours a week on it.  Will take 3 years total to finish but is very exciting.  Making all sorts of tinctures and oils.

I just took a walk around the yard.  Good to get out in the sun.  My thyme is doing great.  So is the parsley, comfrey, oregano, lemon balm, fennel, etc etc.  I love spring.  Watching all the little babies come back is so much fun.

Wow glad to here your pineapple sage over wintered mine never do. Are you sure it isn't pineapple mint, mine is going crazy out there. It usually dies back and comes back but the last ones I put in were really hardy and spread like mint does. I may need to rethink it, dig it up and pot it before it takes over my creeping thyme, the herb garden and the neighbor's lawn.

I am getting ready to start my herbs for the season ... the two which wintered very well are my rosemary and my pineapple sage ... looking forward to sharing ideas with this group.

I have lots of herb books just ask I'll look it up for you.

This group has been quiet for the winter but now that spring is coming surely we will have more to share.  I started my indoor seeds last week and already have little seedlings with just their fake leaves popping up.  Can't wait to start digging in the dirt.

I have found that bees love basil[especially purple leaf] I let it flower out because besides cooking with it and eating it fresh,I like to cut bouquets for inside my home.
