how to harvest thyme?
we have a smallish thyme plant. it is growing very well. what is the proper technique for trimming the thyme plant? we would like to use a small amount on our steak tonight but the plant is also getting a little bit "stringy" and needs to be trimmed. do i just grab a little handfull and snip the ends off of it? help me before i go at it with a pair of scissors and mutilate it :o) thanks for all your help!
