Don't let your garden go to waste! Here's how to dry your herbs for money-saving eating all winter long

If you've been growing herbs 'round your place, now's a really good time to start drying them so you'll have fresher herbs all winter long. Save them now, before their herby oils begin leeching out (though if you dawdle for a few weeks, you'll be okay too — as long as you get to them before frost hits.) When dried or frozen correctly, you'll have herbs for a very long time — to use for cooking, tinctures, or magickal rites. It is so, so easy — this is what I did to save my herbs: cilantro, sage, oregano, chives, and more.
