I have a sage plant that has grown very well, looks healthy except that leaves seem to be curling recently. Could this be a pest? I have looked and don't see any sign of pests, or could it be disease? Thank you

Typically, when sage leaves begin to curl, it indicates a need for more water. If the soil is adequately moist and the plant has not endured a drought, the curling might indicate sunscald. In any event, pruning away the stems with the affected leaves should take care of the problem. Enjoy your garden!
