Helpful tip from The Garden Geeks:  I received a call today from a gardener in SD telling me that she had a bet with a friend and needed my help for the answer. The question? What time of day is best for harvesting the leaves of herbs. The answer....Early Morning and here's why: The best tasting and smelling herbs are filled with their essential oils in early morning, just after the morning dew has evaporated from their leaves. So always harvest in the early morning :)
