August is the best month for home gardeners to begin drying and freezing home-grown herbs for winter storage. Pick your leaves early in the day, before it's too hot. For best flavor, start early in the month. Basil, parsley, and dill do better when stored frozen. Sage, oregano, and mint taste best when air- or oven-dried
