If you use wooden drying racks, you may find them breaking from time to time. Why not recycle them?
We use them consistently, especially during winter, when we dry laundry in front of the wood burning stove.
I had 3 racks that were beyond duct tape and super glue. I took them apart and used them for tomato stakes.
They are not the tallest, or the strongest, but are working out well for my Roma tomato plants. They would work for small plants such as pepper plants as well.
