Drying Herbs

Mr. H. and I are changing up our gardening areas this spring
and we've moved my herb garden.
My oregano really weathered the winter well
and was thriving
but I was worried it wouldn't survive a transplant, 
so I decided to dry what I had.

Instead of bundling stems with strings and then tying the bundles
to another string,
Mr. H. thought of this quick and easy way to hang them up.

It took no time to clip them with clothes pins and 
then we strung the clothes pins onto a string. 

It has taken a little longer than I thought it would for them to dry completely.
Today is two weeks in and I think they are almost done.
They should be really "crunchy" 
when I strip them off the stem for long term storage.
