How to dry herbs…like basil

You can do it anyway you like, but I like to chop it fairly fine and dry it in a basket, tossing it around to even the process. Keeps the color this way. Same for parsley.
Having a staring contest with a praying mantis is good luck for gardens. And it keeps the skunk from getting angry. No photo of the skunk, she was shy.

    a skunk! I’ve almost forgotten how bad they smell but it’s coming back to me. Good thing it was shy. Your garden is looking good and I’m going to try your idea for drying basil.
