I have an herb garden which includes chocolate mint, ginger mint, lemon balm, thyme, catnip and chamomile (among others). I was out of town at a conference and when I returned, my herbs looked not in the best shape and the next days are cool, so I figured I better start harvesting before they croak. I did a quick harvest of the mint, rinsed and now am drying them. I'll probably leave them in the colander to dry out and then put them in bags.
I've been harvesting chamomile and letting the buds dry on a plate before pulling the stems off and bagging them. I will try to take care of the basil, sage and lemon balm next.
I've been wondering what you all do to dry your herbs (if you grow them) and how you use them in tisanes or flavor your teas.
