DIY Solar Dehydrator

I'm excited about building my own solar dehydrator. This time of year I tend to get so many fruits/berries and vegetables that I can't eat them all fresh and my freezer does not have room for them all. Making fruit leathers and just drying the fruits/berries and vegetables to use as snacks and in cooking would help keep a lot more on hand and enjoy my summer harvest through the winter.

Have you built your own solar dehydrator? Please comment and share your experience - what works and what does not.

I'm planning on building the WheatonATC1 model offered for sell through permies. Looks like a great solar dehydrator and if you are interested check out the link to purchase the plans so you can build your own too!





Check out the solar dehydrator plans being offered through permies and please comment bellow to share your own experience with solar dehydrators.

The Misoula1 is another great solar dehydrator that is being offered through permies.





You can see the Wheaton1ATC model in action here:
