Herb Drying Rack....
There are so many on the market.
They range in price from $30.00 and up.
Well I decided to make my own. Mine cost $0.00
Let's make one together.
You will need some scrap wood.
( I found my in the shed. I used it to stake up plants.
It measures 1 1/2 in by ???? )
a staple gun
a saw ( I used a scroll saw)
netting/fencing small gauge
cutters to cut fencing.
Lets get started.
cut 5 pieces of wood 1 1/2 " x 18"
cut 2 pieces of wood 1 1/2 by 15"
sand your ends
cut fencing/netting 19" x 17"
Now you are ready to hammer.
Make your frame..
take 2 , 18" lengths and 2, 15" lengths and
make your frame
Then lay out your fencing on the top and
Now position your 3. 18" lengths equally across
this frame on top of the fencing.
Mine finished at 18" x 16"
Now you are ready to dry your herbs.
I'm drying Lavender.
As you can see my plants are ready to harvest.
You can dry other herbs as well. My oregano,basil, rosemary and thyme, will soon
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial and try making your own.
