I have begun harvesting herbs for drying. In my climate it is fairly easy to just lay the herbs on screening and let them dry. I use trays from my dehydrator. The air has been warm enough and lacking in humidity so the herbs have dried very well in a short period of time. I could use my dehydrator since it has a low temperature setting but with the warm weather we have had I felt the herbs would dry quickly enough. I place the trays out of direct sunlight and check them a few times per day. So far this season I have dried oregano, dwarf oregano, thyme, lemon thyme, spearmint, chocolate mint, pineapple mint, applemint, rose petals, and sage. Herbs can also be hung upside down for drying.
