Spring has got me inspired...replanted my wildly overgrown outdoor thyme plant into a larger pot and everything. In anticipation of the plant woes that accompany its acclimation into a new home, I decided to stem off and collect the most healthy bits of thyme. Bit by bit, I cut. Soon enough, there was a tiny handful of the deliciously fragrant herb--just enough for a mini bouquet. I then took the plant cuttings indoors, where I gently rinsed them off to detach aphids and other bugs, tied the stems together with twine, and hung them upside down from a doorknob. In a few weeks time, I'm considering sticking this dried herb bouquet into a small bud vase to commemorate the season. Spring has never smelled so good, like freshly picked culinary herbs.
