    Anyone know if kale, chard, spinach, parsley and such would work in a dehydrator?

    I have dried parsley and it did fine. I don't know about the others. I have put turnip greens and collards in the freezer.

    Pretty much everything will dehydrate its just a question on what to dehydrate it on so you can get it up again and what you should do first. Saran wrap works well for most things. Check out dehydrate2store.com This lady has it going on and I get all my info on her site. I can most of my greens but dehydration should work just as well. You of course would have to take the time to rehydrate once you needed it. I plan on trying dehydration with everything you mentioned, for my parrot. I"m hoping to greenhouse grow everything you mentioned for my girls this winter. We will see. It will be my first greenhouse winter..maybe..I am pretty sure we can get it done by then lol.
