How to Dry Herbs

Now that I have a yard I love growing herbs, and I’ve found that some herbs are basically foolproof.  I’ve been able to easily grow parsley and sage by simply making sure I water them regularly, which is about as much of a challenge as I can handle in the garden.

But now I have a new problem—I have more sage and parsley than I know what to do with.  So I did what any modern citizen would do—I Googled it.  And like any good search engine, Google came through with my answer.

Thanks to the Internet, I learned how to dry my extra parsley and sage so that I have a supply for the winter.  I was able to find a home for my excess herbs and save some money by not having to buy them at the store!
