Picture me blushing already and I haven't even asked it yet.

WHERE is this dark well ventalated space for drying herbs? I've looked all over the apartment and I can't find it. Did someone hide it, or heaven forbid take it?

Can someone help me find it please.

You don't want them in an air tight container or full sun.

I found this worthwhile, "The oven light of an electric range ... furnishes enough heat for overnight drying."

I'd leave the oven door open.

when I dry my herbs, I tie them up in light bundles, I use rubberbands for the stalky ones. then I twist tie them to an old fashioned wood drying rack. I put them in a spot in the house where it gets good air circulation but no direct sun and then whent he rack is full I cover it with gause to keep the dust off of them.
For my little delicate guy like dill and, things you should dry flat leaf only, I use, um, ya know those pull open window screens?. I place paper towels over that,then lay out the herbs. I can stack the paper towl layers then use another screen for another kind keeping them separate. I have always done that. it works real well.
I love the smell of the house when all these herbs are drying.
