I wanted to harvest some of my herbs to encourage their growth so I trimmed some stalks of rosemary, thyme, and oregano. I also cut some basil, thinking I could make a small batch of pesto.

I read that you can freeze hard herbs (like the thyme and rosemary) and use them like fresh herbs later.

Now I'm off to research what I can do with my fresh herbs. I know I always avoid recipes that call for fresh rosemary and thyme because the little containers of fresh herbs at the grocery store are too expensive. If I freeze enough I can be cooking all winter long with my freezer stock! Yeah!
