This wheelbarrow insists that it has at least one more season left in it after some quick repairs today.

Whow! And I thought my wheelbarrow was bad. This is another fine example of making due with what you have and keeping things out of the landfill.

Hey, that's our good wheelbarrow! :-) It's got a new, broad tire and a deep basin --- hauling dirt in it is like pushing air. I'm so glad it's back in commission --- I've been working the baby wheelbarrow into the ground.

Does that meet code?

It looks like you are using a 2x2 as a handle bar, held on with a good stiff piece of fence wire,(good choice).

Whatever it is THAT looks like a QUALITY repair by OUR standards, well done!

Love your Blog.

"Does that meet code?" has got to be our least favorite question of the year --- congratulations! :-) (So glad you're joking...)
