Drill a few holes in the bottom, fill it with potting soil and just like that, it becomes a planter. Never mind the flat tire, just plant something bushy in front of it. Nobody will ever know!
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

I'm considering that, actually... But have to wait until I find a place that won't irritate the yard-nazi neighbor

My favorite piece of equipment for unloading that big bale of peat from the back of my wagon and getting it to where I want it to be.....
I could be wrong...

that's cool!

I have a corner lot, so when I come home with bags of mulch/compost in the car, I drive to the side of the yard where they need to be and empty the car there. OR I stack them to one side of the driveway and use my hand-truck to shift them as needed.

Lucky to have a DH who likes making things....

I'm not very good at making things, but I'm pretty decent at finding ways to do things Hilarious! and I can't *always* pull up to point b, but when I can, it's much easier.
