I just read a post of yours about how to make fresh rubbed sage. Although it sounds easy - after crumbling the leaves through a colander you say "let leaves dry" with no further elaboration. If I knew how to make this I would have not needed to look it up. Drying the leaves? In the air? In something with a lid? How far in advance do I need to do this before they are ready to be used? A few hours? A few days? More than that or less? Should I not make more than I need for one occassion? If I do have leftover dried leaves how should they be stored? I thank you for posting these instructions but I really would like to know more about the drying part. This might seem rude, but as an editor and writer to forget more details (that people are trying to follow seems a large oversight and kind of discredits the site - as I used to think http://about.com was a good place to turn to - if something is so easy that it doesn't contain a clue on the leaf drying step seems like the person who was writing this was so familiar with it that she neglected to look back to see what would need further description to a novice. I am sorry to say this but the internet has become so unreliabe ( about things far more important than crushing sage leaves), but this is a symptom of what has become epidemic. To me a metaphor for this piece was like telling the ingedients to mix up to make a cake and then saying "then put it in the oven and bake it - without telling people how long and at what temperature to do so. I am sure you are capable of better than this, but you should think, or at least anticipate what your teaders are going to want or need to know before you put stuff up. Forgive for all this fuss, but on some level (though maybe not so much in this particular instance) I think this is important.

I just bookmarked those two sites. Two bad the one reviewer didn't understand wild yeast. I though it was very clear.  I do have a health related question and that drew me to the ginger post. Bloating. What other herbal teas or products would you recommend? Important to me as I also have a herniated belly button and if I bloat up it acerbates the situation.

U- might also add more about the difference between cane sugar, molasses, honey and fructose. The latter is must avoid and is in near everything including "healthy" yogurt.

Hi Theo, 
I sure do! Growing indoors is  extremely popular for all gardeners, and  your idea would allow for more garden space with a smaller footprint. I love it.
