Some random images and thoughts on drying parsley for the first time. I’ll put it all into one post at the end if it turns out well!

Started out with the biggest parsley, and grouped them into small bunches. Tied them with the left over twine from the trellis, and hung on a curtain rod in a window that gets a lot of direct sunlight. They are nice and bushy here, yesterday. Today they are wilting and I’m watching carefully to make sure they get good heat and airflow.

Hi – I’m new to your site, but I like what I see! I dry parsley the same way you do, but I use recycled rubber bands because they allow for shrinkage of the stems.

I’ll be checking back in!

herbs shouldn’t be dried in the sun. they will loose a lot of their oils and health benefits. Try a nice airy *shaded* place in your house.

Seeing your parsley makes ours look like a joke… and with the heat a few weeks ago – ours has shriveled up and is on the verge of death. Vurge… verge… whatever.

Looks awesome. Nice work.

The parsley looks very pretty hanging in your window like that- better than curtains! :-)
