Harvesting Home Garden Herb Seed?
Distributed by Central Press Association
During midsummer the fresh
green leaves, flowers and oils of
many herbs are gathered for use.
Other herbs of which the seeds
are used are gathered as soon
as they ripen.
The seeds of cumin, dill, fennel,
coriander, caraway, bene and an
ise are more useful in many
kitchens than are the stems and
leaves of the plants.
If you are growing any of the
above named herbs in your home
garden, remember that when har
vesting, the seed heads should be
* with short stems, as shown in
the accompanying Garden-Graph
After harvesting these herbs,
spread the seed heads out on a
Clean cloth for ahout a week or
longer so that they may dry. Do
not spread the seeds where there
is any dampness. The attic in
most homes is a good place for
drying seeds during the slnmer
season. Turn the seeds frequently
to facilitate their drying.
After the seeds are thoroughly
dry they will separate easily
from the stems. The chaff can
be removed from the seeds bv
blowing on them gently.
Store the seeds in covered .glass
jars, carefully labeled. Be sure
they are dry and well cured be
fore putting them away in the,
glass containers.
When once established in the j
home garden herbs need very,
l'.ttle attention. Therefore, it is,
advisable to use care in the se
lection of the location of each
group as wej! as in th« proper |
preparation of the soil.

★ We, The Women
Maybe you hadn’t noticed—but
the languid look is back in style.
During the war years, the wom
en who once went in for that
“beautiful-but-bored” manner be
came crisp and business-like.
Because they 'were suddenly
faced with doing their own house
work, or because they were up to
their jobs, or a combination of
both, they didn’t have time to cul
tivate a languid look.
Besides, most oi them had too
many war-caused personal wor
ries to go around looking bored
by it all. Life picked them up
and pushed them around a bit,
and the alive, interested, busy
look was fhe order of the day.
But once again many women
have too much time on their
hands. It’s beginning to show.
They are spending time dress
ing up for parties that often
aren’t worth tie effort. But the
parties are time-killers, and so is
the sudden new emphasis on fash
So the women without enough j
to do are spending long hours in
the beauty salons again, taking
great pains with their shopping
and dressing. And then they- don t
know what to do with themselves.
So there they are—wearing the
languid look. They’re all dressed
up—but too many of them don't
have any really important place
to go.
