Today for Labour Day, my nieces came out for a while and we harvested herbs from the garden. Chocolate Mint, Lemon Balm, Fennel, Spearmint, Oregano, Terragon, Dill, Apple Mint, Chamomile, Bee Balm, and Cat Nip. I cut the herbs, and the girls wrapped elastic bands around the stems so I can hang them to dry. Then we came inside, picked what we thought would be yummy combinations for our own personal tea and had a tea party. Jayme picked Lemon Balm and Chocolate mint. Jesse had Fennel, Chocolate Mint and Lemon Balm. I picked Cat Nip and Chocolate Mint and Chamomile and Sara shared with all of us.

Sometimes with fresh tea, you get a leaf!
We also picked some Holly-Hocks and made some Pretty Ladies
