I have a sage plants that has these brown spots in squiggly curved shapes on some the leaves. Has anyone seen this on any other plants? If so, do you know what it is? Is it still safe to eat?
I appriecate your time. Have the most wonderful day.

It appears to be some sort of leaf miner damage. If you do a search for that you will see similiar results.

I don't believe it would hurt the sage for use. Perhaps someone more experienced with this will tell us how to prevent this.

it is safe to use, but...
I usually wont use it, since there will be tiny insect mining down there, or their left behind pup and exoskeleton shell,.
to think of it (bit disgust), I will just use other non damaged leaves.
