On a whim the night of our first predicted frost, I cut a number of herbs and strung them up in the kitchen to dry. Since our climate is arid the herbs dried in about 1 week.
I stripped or crunched the leaves off and enjoyed a little help from Bounder when I cleaned the catnip. The herbs were so fragrant!
Finally, I put the dried herbs in jars and labeled them. I stored the jars out of the sun to help preserve the freshness and strung up what was left of our fresh herbs since this worked so well. I am so wishing I had dried more!
