Garlic curing racks
estimates that our
new garlic curing racks might save us about a week
of labor over the course of the next fifty years. I figure he's
not far off.
The drying racks our helper
built for us in the solar
tower take all of
the hunting and setup out of vegetable curing. The hardware cloth
bases are strong enough to hold quite a few heads of garlic, while
still allowing for plenty of air circulation, and the roof keeps out
the rain. (We very rarely have blowing rain --- if you do, you
might need to extend the roof.)
I'm not yet sure whether
we'll have enough surface area for all
of our crops, though. The garlic filled all six racks up to the
brim, and I
might need to cure onions before the garlic is ready to go into
We'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
Our chicken waterer keeps our hens laying at full throttle with plenty of clean water.
