Harvesting Tips
Gather fresh thyme leaves as needed throughout the growing season. To dry thyme, cut stems after plants have flowered, waiting until new growth produces stems 3-4 inches long. Snip stems early in the day, after dew has dried, gathering stems into small bundles. Hang stems upside down in a dark, well-ventilated place. Check leaves for dryness; fully dry leaves crumble when pressed between fingers. Strip dried leaves from stems, and store in airtight jars.
