Easy tomato drying rack.
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

Step 2: Paint (optional)
