You can do as I do and mix a little of everything! Just think what you would like in a soup or stew! You can put different combinations together if you like, and as they are dried, add them to a gallon zip lock or as I use, gallon jars. By the end of the growing season you will have a bounty of veggies that takes up very little space and tastes wonderful! I take a couple of cups of the mixed veggies and pour four cups of boiling water over them and let them re-hydrate a little, about 30 minutes. Then you can cook as is with a little salt and pepper and its vegetable soup or add more broth and meat and make yourself a hearty meal!
These also make great gifts in a jar! Complete with instructions, recipes, seasoning packets etc. I bought some fancy jars this year to put some in and added them to holiday baskets! I haven't discovered anything to date that I can't dehydrate that I can grow!
