Summer bounty

a big bowl of WILD blackberries, picked down in town.  Hello Pie Filling! (already dug into it for breakfast)
 And, introducing the solar dehydrator!
I built a little cabinet with glass walls and rack holders to dry fruits and veggies:
 It's got some mylar on the door, but getting it hot enough isn't the problem. I might need to have more ventilation as I figure out what works and what doesn't.
 The trays are made from old onion mesh bags stapled to some redwood frames. I wanted something that would be 'food appropriate'.  We've used that sort of thing before.

Well, we never really stop.  But, took a picture of today's raking below the yurt.  Every year I work to get a bit wider swath cleared....
