I’ve got an abundance of herbs right now, particularly basil, in my garden. This video from GardenGirlTV demonstrates how easy it is to preserve herbs when they are in abundance for later in the year. You’ll be able to waste less of your harvest and save money on store bought herbs throughout the colder months if you do a little freezing now.

If your herb garden is overflowing, preserve some of the herbs to use months from now.
