Super cool mulch moving tool...thank you Dad


As you know I've been moving about 24 yards of wood chips. I've discovered certain things about shovelling wood chips. You can't jam a shovel into a pile of chips. You need to slide the shovel along the ground. If it's packed down, it can be too heavy to move. So I needed something to pull the mulch from the top over the front. Then loose and fluffy, it is easy to pick up. I tried every tool but settled on my garden rake. Then PING a light went on and I remembered this beautiful old potato rake I was given for Christmas this past year by my Dad. It was his fathers. I brought it out. I had forgotten how heavy it was. And the tines are sharp. It is the PERFECT mulch moving tool. Thank you Dad, I will cherish it for the rest of my life.

Sure is, tools are integral in any project, not to mention gardening!
