i brought the prunings into the kitchen and stripped off the leaves. i left leaves on the tips of some of the straighter stems and kept them for cuttings so i can get some more plants going.
|cuttings left, leaves for the kitchen on the right|
i ended up with way too many leaves to be able to use them fresh so i spread them out to dry on propagation flats lined with paper towels.
by the time i got done my hands were pretty well seasoned and i smelled quite delicious.
