I hope this is the right place to put this. I've tried unsuccessfully to dry the herbs I gather and grow, but it just isn't working-they all go bad! My comfrey is ready to be harvested and put into bunches-seriously y'all it's as tall as I am! I'm also growing a lot of aromatics this year-lemon balm, bee balm, things like that that I would like to dry and save. I usually hang the herbs in my kitchen, which doesn't get a lot of sunlight so I thought it would be okay-but everything just went bad on me last year. How you do dry your herbs?

I wonder if there is too much moisture in your kitchen. We've dried herbs in ours but it's very big and open. We actually dry most now in a big porch room that does get quite a bit of sun and it's fine.

I'd suspect too much moisture, also. If you don't have a dehydrator, you can try with an oven on low with the door propped open. But you'd have to be careful not to get it too hot or you'd scorch them.
