How to Build a Drying Table for Salad Mixes Post Harvest
Learn how to build a drying table to dry all of your field cut or baby greens and salad mixes. Drying your greens using this table will allow you to extend the shelf life of your greens mixes up to 2 weeks! Be sure to check the links below for my other post harvest station build videos and links to the products I used to build them. As always this is a DIY project using many recycled parts.
This drying table is made from 1/4" stainless steel hardware clothe, 2 Lasko fans, and some recycled wood.
