upcoming delivery of soil today and mulch (possibly next week, depending on weather) for the garden, we needed a new wheelbarrow of some sort. I have the awesome trailer for the Zen Machine that I got last year but A) it's more for hauling and pulling heavy loads, B) you can't use it stand alone, and most importantly, C) it won't fit through the garden gate.
So I've been looking for something that would be just right and I think I found something that will work. It's this:
I got it at Home Depot last weekend for a great deal; it was on sale, plus I had a coupon for 15% off any single item! Now, they do sell it at Amazon of course, for more than I paid, but if you are so inclined, or what to read more about it, the link is here: Rubbermaid Big Wheel Dump Truck
|Rubbermaid Big Wheel Farm Cart|
And look! It fits right through the gate! This is very important, because I'll be hauling in the soil for the new beds and then shortly thereafter, a huge load of mulch to put down around the beds. There is only one easy way to get it inside the garden and that's with something like this. It holds 7.5 cu feet, has a 300 lb weight capacity, and best of all, for our 'thorny environment', it has flat free tires that won't puncture.
Let the hauling begin!
And that will begin today, as you read this I am at the farm awaiting a delivery of 5 cubic yards of soil for the raised beds. It will be put to good use.
More later today!
