I have a lot of herbs growing outside...mostly basil and oregano. Can anyone advise me on how and when to harvest the rest of it that we haven't used up to this point? What's the best way to dry it so we can use the dried herbs all winter?Answer Question

If you have a dehydrator, that's the best way to handle drying your herbs. I'm going to grind down my basil in the blender with evoo and pine nuts to make pesto then freeze the pesto. Until then, I've been trying to cook the over growth. Next year I'm going to can them with tomatoes.
That link is to my series of "too much basil in my garden" recipes.
