    Does anyone have knowledge about weather or not it's a good idea to dry greens for the winter? I have an abundant supply of wild and gardened greens that I'd like to preserve for the lizards. They include chicory, dandelion, kale, mustard, clover, plantain, oregano and more. I'd do 2 batches, one staples and one batch to feed occasionally, based on research I've done concerning their diets. I would reconstitute them with water and feed along with fresh greens from the store plus other fresh vegetables and small amouts of fresh fruits. My lizards are a bearded dragon and blue-tongue skink. Thanks in advance.

    I don't see why not. I dehydrate a lot of food for my family. No nutrition is lost when dehydrating. I use the excalibur dehydrator, just love it!

    Thanks. I plan to hang the greens upside down to dry but I should look into a dehydrator too at some point.
