R's Dehydrator Zine

Yes, we are still on our zine making kick. But this is a PRICELESS example of what a fantastic hobby it can be...

A few days ago, Ross was looking up on-line some plans to make his own food dehydrator.

I am not sure where S & Peelu were, but R somehow got roped into investigating homemade dehydrators with her father.

I was upstairs on the computer working on our regrettably behind accounting books, but listening to their conversation on gardening and how to preserve all of our food this year.

A while later I heard R head over to the kitchen table and the loud "thunk" of the crayon box as she placed it on the table.

Then R started calling up to me..."Mama, how do you spell dehydrator"?

Wha??? "How do you spell vegetable" I answered her and my interest was piqued, but I had work to do....

Then she was quiet for about an hour or so. Then she came up to show me her "Dehydrator Book". (Which will actually be more of a zine as she plans on making copies for her cousins).

I was stunned. And amazed. It's pretty dang cool.

I love zines.

And I love creative kids.

She gave me permission to share it with you all, provided (she says) that everybody starts a garden this year and dehydrates some of their food.

So.....get digging, folks.
