have found is...the microwave!
No thyme to wait for herbs to dangle about drying? Or maybe you live in a humid climate like we do? Try these simple steps to quickly preserve every last leaf in your herb garden.

Pardon me for saying so but isn't that what dehydrators are for? been using them for years for
everything never had a problem. they too are a dry heat I use them at night and down in my basement. my electricity here is less expensive at night and the basement is cooler so it keeps the house cooler too.
Here's another tip I thought you would enjoy. Are you tired of having to go out in the rain and/or snow to collect more logs for your fireplace? One client had the same issue and here's
our solution ~ Build a woodshed for the logs attached to the house (approx. 6' x 5'– 2 logs deep). The shed can be accessed from the outside as well as from the interior of your home. In the fall you can load up the shed with logs.When you're ready to start your fire, all you have to do is open your insulated swinging door and collect the logs.

Can you post pic from insideto see the depth and the general view
Create a lower level "room with a view" when you transform an unsightly window well into a Pondless Waterfall. Besides a gorgeous view, you'll enjoy the soothing sound of running water
when you open the window. The waterfall keeps re-circulating so no water enters the basement window. Watch the video that shows the rest of this amazing landscape. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhSZyfidz4c
