Before I say anything else, WELCOME TO MY 1,000th POST!
Here is a cool idea for drying herbs. It is a tea-light candle-powered “space heater”, which really only requires two flower pots, a glass holder for the candles, and a trivet of some sort to set the assembly on.
You can use this contraption to dry herbs or even heat your space, say, when the power goes out? I am going to lay in the supplies for the next time the heat goes off here.
There are several versions of this idea at youtube, but this one seems to be the simplest (zero guy skills needed), and she mentions drying herbs by it.
