Thank you for this! My thyme plant decided to really grow much larger than I had anticipated, so I will definitely be doing this in a few weeks :-)

It really depends on the humidity level in the room you have them drying in. You should be able to tell by shaking the bag or peaking inside. Once they're dry, crumble the leaves up & put them in a glass jar.They 'll be good for about 6 months.

This is great. I always have too much basil in the summer from my garden but not any in the winter. Now I can dry them and use them all year. Does anyone know about how long I will need to leave them hanging until they are dry? And then how long can I save them once they are dried?
