Harvesting Yarrow

Harvesting Yarrow

On a rainy day, the Yarrow is ready for harvesting. 🙂 I shall be driving our kitties nuts, by hanging them on our high bedroom ceiling for drying. 😉

Yarrow will bloom all late spring to summer long. Gather the leaves and flowers by cutting the entire stem half way down. Harvest after the flowers are open and when they are still vibrant looking. Tie them by their stems in small bunches and hang them out of direct sunlight. When fully dry, garble them, and store in a mason jar.
