Honestly friends it has been such a chilly, drizzly couple of weeks around here that I can hardly think about drying anything. I would like a summer do-over on account of crumby weather, and my head being elsewhere. But, as summer is coming to a close, let's try to preserve what we can. Let's dry herbs.
This is a little (okay, ALOT) gimmicky, and I distain gimmick with every ounce of my being, but considering I have actually done this two years running, and it doesn't involve the purchase of overly specific equipment (assuming you own a car), I'm just going to own up to my sensational attention grabbiness and recommend that you try it. In the past I've discussed drying herbs in a warm oven. Works great, as long as you keep an eye on it. You want the over to stay warm enough to dry out the leaves, but not get so warm that it blackens them, which can be a little tricky. The back of the car seams to be the goldilocks sweet spot. Not too hot, and not too cold.
