How to Harvest and Dry Parsley
Parsley is a great herb to grow that can be harvested throughout the summer growing season. Here are step by step instructions to harvesting, and drying, parsley.
Parsley or garden parsley is a species of Petroselinum in the family Apiaceae. There are over 30 varieties of parsley, few of which I would know. I planted Flat Parsley in my garden (Italian Parsley) which is great for cooking. Generally, Parsley is ready to cut or harvest 70 to 90 days after planting. Mine was ready sooner.
I decided to run out and harvest my parsley yesterday. Life has been a bit chaotic here, and I was afraid it would get hot, the parsley would bolt, and then I’d lose it all. It was ready to cut a week or so ago. That meant I had a ton I could cut!
• Parsley is ready to harvest when you see that the stems have three segments.
