:D

it was easier to buy sage, rather than waiting for it to grow, harvest it and then wait for it to dry.

Indeed! (So it's "easier" instead of "easyer"? Oops! C'est à cause de mon français!)

"C'est à cause de mon français" = "It's because of my french".

Another easy way to store herbs is to freeze them.  I just read of this myself:

Chop the fresh herbs and put about two tablespoons in each section of an ice cube tray.  Fill the tray with water and freeze.  Pop out your herb ice cubes and freeze them in freezer bags.  

It would be like adding fresh herbs to a dish - just drop in the frozen cube in the winter.

Great idea! I have only read about keeping 'em fresh in the refrigerator, but freezing 'em...that I did not know.

You can also do that with fruit and certian herbs for teas and cordials, its considered fancy. It looks cool enoguh, for holloween it fake bugs and things I hear (don't do hallpween over here, not yet anyway)

I prefer to use fresh herbs.  I think they're easier.  My herb bed is right outside the kitchen door.  In the winter, when I'm fixing a turkey and want sage, I just step out back and cut off a piece.  It doesn't die back too terribly much until January, so it's still usable for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Also:

I have a juicer and just juiced a pineapple, some strawberries and the last of my apples. 

We're leaving for three days tomorrow and I didn't want the fruit to go bad.

I'm going to freeze it in ice cube trays.  It's really good to drop a couple in a glass of cold tea.
