Had an idea
I washed out the trailer with water which should be clean enough to dry fruit. I thought abut painting it, but nope, it’s ok as it is for this purpose as the fruit I’ll be drying on it will be whole and not cut.
Next I needed to move the trailer a bit to get it more out in the sun, but it was too heavy for me to move by hand so I got out my Toyota and hooked it to the trailer and maneuvered it around to where I thought it should go.
I thought some kind of cover would be good to keep the birds and critters out of it as they like to eat the fruit. I had some rebar and chicken wire so I cut some rebar and welded it up to make a frame the size of the trailer top.
Checking it out
I got the chicken wire attached to the steel frame just before dark and tried the cover out. It fit well and should work out ok. I may put some hinges on it to make it easier to use, if after using it a bit it seems like the way to go. So now it’s ready for some fruit.
I got the trailer done just before dark and sat around a bit chair hopping until it got dark.
And that was my day for a nice one.
