Re: wagons and carts
Ooh! The bargain of the century, Kitty!
I think my suburban garden is about half an acre, not as much space to
cover as you and many other folks here seem to have. I've been getting
by with wheelbarrows for the past nine years. Can't say I've been
entirely satisfied with any of them, though. Mainly, I've wanted
something that is easier to haul a heavy load in. Something a little
I'd buy a cart--for a price like $39, definitely!--but my storage space
is severely limited. The last wheelbarrow I bought is too new for me to
give a fair evaluation of its performance and durability, but it does on
thing I love: it folds for storage! It is also supposed to be an
ergonomic improvement on the configuration of a standard 'barrow,
putting the strain on your arms and legs rather than on your back. I can
say that it is much easier on your back, but I suspect that it wears me
out faster to push the load this way. I'm not entirely sure yet how I
feel about the new creature.

Here's what my new wagon looks like - the one without the sides:
I can't beleieve they want $119 for it; I paid $39. I've seen it for $69 with mesh removable sides, rather than wood.
