Have you ever been a little overwhelmed when your garden produce starts coming in? (Sometimes I feel like trying to give away garden tomatoes is like trying to give away free kittens.)

That's exactly why it's nice to have a few ideas about how you'll preserve your produce! Do you dehydrate? If not, it might be a fun DIY project.

Today's article outlines instructions for making your own solar dehydrator! See all the info you'll need HERE -->> http://www.diynatural.com/how-to-build-a-solar-dehydrator/
