Houses have an enormous supply of hot, dry air in the attic whenever the sun shines in the summer. Read how Eric Evans made a drying cabinet in an upstairs room to hold cooling racks and arranged a 4-inch duct and a small fan to suck air from the attic and blow it down through the cabinet full of sliced peaches. See "Low-Energy Food-Storage Solutions" in the summer issue of The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener.
