Lemon Balm

Since I planted it not really knowing what it is or what to do with it, it is research time.

Here is a great site that talks about the basic methods to store Lemon Balm and also how to cut it back.

Here is a recipe for Lemon Balm Popsicle. Great site. Step by step instructions as well as pictures.

Lemon Balm seems to be a great addition to the herb garden. I can't wait till mine gets a little bigger so I harvest it. Since I just planted it this year I figure that I should harvest in the fall. Next year maybe two times.Since I have two other new additions (herbs) to the garden they will be the next couple of posts.

Thanks for the links, I'll have to check them out. We planted lemon balm last year and it reseeded itself. Now we have lemon balm EVERYWHERE!
