Harvest time!

>> January 12, 2011

I was told by a friend that it's healthy for my herbs to harvest them when they are ready instead of just letting them grow and wither. My basil, for example, has been growing like crazy for the past few weeks. I think its about 3 feet tall now. I only pluck them when I need it. But she said harvesting and trimming them when they are ready will encourage the herb to grow more leaves. And so I did :)!

Sylvia sniffing the aromatic basil leaves.



My parsley that I thought will never grow. Apparently, its development was just slow.



The peppermint also needed some trimming.


So this evening, we might have salad with lotsa basil in it, a dish that requires parsley, and probably a minty refreshment!

I work and live at night time. I am a person deprived of natural light. I rarely cook in the morning as I'm almost always asleep, else busy with house chores. As much as I love natural light in my photography, I'm afraid I don't usually have that luxury, unless I sacrifice my sleep, or make an effort to stay up longer during the day to do a cooking + photo session. So I depend on my flash, and sometimes, available light from my fluorescent bulbs. Although, in my opinion, nothing beats the natural light, I am, so far, satisfied with my shots using my flash that I learned to love.

I always look forward to the weekends for some sunlight.
