What has four big wheels, is bright yellow, and was a challenge to put together?
My new garden cart! Well, it really isn't new, it has been sitting in the box in the storage shed for almost ten years. My husband brought it home one day to surprise me but for some reason it never got assembled. Recently I realized how handy it would be and after my success with the wheelbarrow I decided to tackle putting this monster together.
It took a bit of a battle and a lesson on Nylock nuts and bolts but as you can see I got it done. I was wasting so much time and energy walking back and forth from one end of the garden to the other and then back to the storage shed looking for a shovel, rake, or other tool that I needed, now I can take my tools with me to the spot where I am working.
It holds all of my basic gardening equiptment and has room for bags of chicken manure (which I use a lot of), gypsum, and other soil additives, plus a container for clipping and weeds. For something so large it is amazingly easy to navigate.
Handy indeed, I should have done this years ago!
