Need a quick tomato drying rack? I grow tomatoes and found myself with a lot of tomatoes, so many that I wasn't using them fast enough. I happen to love sun dried tomatoes and chili's and decided I would throw together a quick drying rack. This is what I came up with from things I had around the house.

Step 1: Secure Tomato Cages Together

Thought it would look nice in white.
Step 3: Prep the Screen.
Purchase or clean some old screen door mesh.

Cut the screen to fit the rings. Using zip ties secure the mesh to the layers.
Step 5: Shrink Wrap.
I wrapped the cages to to bottom leaving one slit down the side to access the shelves.
Step 6: Fill It.
Find someone to full it full of fresh tomatoes!
Step 7: Sun Dry.
find a nice spot to catch some sun.
