My drying rack

This is the rack Chuck built me right after we moved to this farm.  We had several aluminum window screens from the old farmhouse, so he built a wooden frame for them to slide into.  There are 14 screens about 4" apart, so it dries a lot of wool in a fairly small space.  Its full of BFL wool that I washed last night.  These nice dry late summer days are perfect for drying.

WONDERFUL idea - and so space saving for the space-challenged.

It could also be used for drying herbs or other food when not filled with fleece.

Yes, Deb, count on you to think of using it for dehydrating! :^) I've been ready your blog with interest.
I tried drying watermelon once, too. HEHE
The best thing was the meadow mushrooms we dried one year when there was a HUGE bumper crop of them in the pastures. I've never seen so many mushrooms.

Love the rack! I think I'm going to put one on my list. Great reuse of screens.

How rude!

I think this wren is flipping me off.  What do you think?
