HERB SAVER FOR FRESH HERBS

Did some shopping yesterday, still can't get out to the farm today, roads around there flooded and the property is way too wet to do anything.  Going to head out tomorrow, if it doesn't rain again today (oh and for those asking, 2nd Family checked the bees and they are fine, so that's good!)

While we were out shopping, we found these:

Herb Saver
It's a clearance item...called the HERB SAVER.  You put water in the bottom portion, and then you pop open the clear portion and the cut herbs go inside.  Then you just put it in the fridge.  It's really nothing more than putting them in a glass of water but they do stay nice and neat inside and take up less room in the fridge.  Plus they look kind of cool, ha.


They actually rang up at $2.50 so we got both for $5.00.  It was a pretty good deal.  We would have bought a few more but they only had two left.

I found them on Amazon, click here herb saver, but of course they go for a bit more than our clearance price, ha.  


With the herbs growing at the farm, it will be a good way to make sure we keep our bounty fresh as we use it for cooking.

Today is "RACE DAY" in our household, we love NASCAR but like to watch the others from time to time and...


...first up, is the Indianapolis 500...the 100th.  Someday we want to go watch in person.  It's probably amazing to watch.


Then after that, the NASCAR Coca-Cola 600...however, that race is currently under delay threat as rain comes into the area from Tropical Storm Bonnie.

Hope you are having a great (and dry) weekend!

  1. I've been planting so many more herbs than normal this year. I love using them and want to try more every year if I can. I've got some Mexican ones growing this time so that should be interesting.

    1. It's amazing how much water can fall from seemingly nothing huh? Glad you made it home safely and yah for no watering. We haven't watered in weeks now, ha.

  4. I like the herb saver - another great bargain find for you!
    It's a lot neater than a glass of water covered with a plastic bag for the herbs.
    So glad the bees are ok.
