If you glance toward the ceiling in our kitchen you'll notice a string between the cupboards on one side of the room.
By mid-summer, there is usually a cluster of drying herbs hanging there.
By mid-winter, the dried herbs have long since been crushed into dark tins inside the cupboards, and we're enjoying garden basil and oregano in our pizza sauce.
So if you're ever in our kitchen, look up and see what season it is by what's hanging on the string. Dust means late winter or early spring.
