Ad-hoc solar dehydrator

It’s crude, looks rude, but it is a pieced together testing prototype.

There will be revisions as I found out just how much heat this generates and drying effectiveness.

***UPDATE – 05/01/13***
With overcast to partly skies, temperature hovering near 70°F, the internal temperature has ranged from 100°-110°F+.

I consider this fairly decent as the backing of this prototype is only double layered 4mil plastic which I spray painted black. There are weeks to go yet before any real harvesting is done to make use of a dehydrator so that gives plenty of time for the heat to set the paint and all fumes to clear.
