Picture me blushing already and I haven't even asked it yet.

WHERE is this dark well ventalated space for drying herbs? I've looked all over the apartment and I can't find it. Did someone hide it, or heaven forbid take it?

Can someone help me find it please.

You don't want them in an air tight container or full sun.

I found this worthwhile, "The oven light of an electric range ... furnishes enough heat for overnight drying."

I'd leave the oven door open.

Too funny!
Thanks for my first chuckle of the day!

And thanks for the terrific link, LMT! [kissies]
I have a few different mints this year that I'd like to try drying and that link has wonderful info on doing that! [thumb]

when I dry my herbs, I tie them up in light bundles, I use rubberbands for the stalky ones. then I twist tie them to an old fashioned wood drying rack. I put them in a spot in the house where it gets good air circulation but no direct sun and then whent he rack is full I cover it with gause to keep the dust off of them.
For my little delicate guy like dill and, things you should dry flat leaf only, I use, um, ya know those pull open window screens?. I place paper towels over that,then lay out the herbs. I can stack the paper towl layers then use another screen for another kind keeping them separate. I have always done that. it works real well.
I love the smell of the house when all these herbs are drying.
