We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
A two-wheeled wheelbarrow? There was a two-wheeled contraption in my Dad's greenhouses that no one could control in the narrow aisleways. It sat idle, while he and the other workers used real wheelbarrows for everything. I became a grand prix wheelbarrower at about 9 or 10, as soon as I had enough weight to lean into it. I still enjoy wheeling dirt, 70 years later.
Clam rake? Must try one. My new bamboo rake, which I spent too many hours tracking down after the previous one's thirty years of service during which an exuberant grandchild wrecked the tines, is my favorite for removing misc. summer leaves without destroying the undergrowth.
Wheelbarrow is part of a set, far as i'm concerned. The other part is a two-wheeled rear axle cart (AKA ''kart'') whose elongated-bin front lip tips over and lets you rake directly into it without having to hoist the load --like a dustpan & broom set. Great way to avoid the red dance (AKA ''red ants'').
I run one of them two wheelers myself (mines Yellow) and yes I have grown weary of trying to keep the original tires inflated. Thanks for the tip, I will look into these replacements. The rest of my equipment works fine on occasion. I have a never ending honey do list as well but I am blessed with a loving wife that still lets me interrupt it from time to time.
