Now onto collecting your herbs. I will assume you have grown your own, positively identified some you wild harvested OR bought some bulk herbs from a reputable source. If you need some resources for herb identification I would suggest: Herb Pinterest Board.
BASKET-I use baskets that I have been given, cardboard boxes from the grocery store, or occasionally an ice cream bucket. I admit I did buy a cute rectangular basket from the Dollar Tree to aid in herb collecting! (Using our affiliate links to help you find what we own and use)
PLANT ID BOOK-If you are still trying to figure out what grows in your yard or neighborhood then I would suggest a good book like:Identifying & Harvesting Edible and Medicinal Plants, The Complete Book of Herbs: A Practical Guide to Growing and Using Herbs, Edible Wild Plants for Beginners, Backyard Foraging: 65 Familiar Plants You Didn’t Know You Could Eat and Western Garden Book of Edibles: The Complete A-Z Guide
SCISSORS-helps to harvest herbs and the parts of plants that you want without damaging plants around it or hurting yourself.
GLOVES- simple fabric garden gloves or even cheap food service gloves can both come in handy.
DRYING RACK- You will need a good place to dry your herbs. You could use a clothes drying rack, diaper drying rack, herb mesh rack or herb horse. Of course you could make a drying screen for cheap from an old picture frame.
