Folding Hand Cart
Don't be fooled by this lightweight, low-profile Global Industrial Folding Hand Cart because the strong aluminum frame handles up to a 275-lb. load. Folds flat in seconds with the push of a button that automatically retracts the wheels, noseplate, and telescopic comfort-grip handle. Features 19"W x 13-1/2"D cast aluminum noseplate and 7" non-marring, shock absorbing rubber wheels. Measures 19"W x 42-1/2"H overall -- 31"H when folded -- and weighs just 10 lbs. $74.95

Spring Mix Greens
A packet of spring mix greens/lettuces seems to me the best bargain around. So many edible combinations to choose from. In my local stores, packaged spring mix in the produce section costs from $5.69 to $8.69/lb. What is the price in your neighborhood?

For from $1.69 to $2.29 plus tax, a hungry gardener can buy enough seeds for the season. Better yet, the ultimate in fresh, nutritious, cut-and-come again greens are at your fingertips. Grow them in a window box, a pretty pot, a corner of your perennial bed or the kitchen border. Mange.
