The weather really is dreadful. I am having to gather herbs whenever there is a dry spell. Here is the kitchen hiding amid a forrest of Lovage. At least with the Aga on it dries in just a couple of days ready for the next batch to come in.
This old screen is so great for drying the herbs, you can move it about easily. I have another one that is huge and takes 2 people to drag it around. Does a great job but you really don't want it in front of the Aga when you are gasping for a cup of tea.
Every day I am hoping for dry enough weather to harvest more herbs. I know I am begining to sound like a gnarled old farmer moaning on about not getting his crops cut. Any minute now I will be chewing a stalk of grass, wearing a flat cap and donning giant wellies. Maybe I should get a sheepdog, combine harvester and a few hundred cows just to complete the image…………….
I think this endless rain is getting to me.
