From the blogger: "We had recently went to a farm to go strawberry picking, and they shuttled us to the field in a hayride. I joked to Eileen that I should build our own hayride to pull the family around the backyard, but then I got thinking how useful a wagon would be. So as many great inventions once started with a mere joke, so did my next project. I was going to build a wagon for the mower."

This is a handy project to make. I can see a lot of uses for it. It could be altered to be pulled behind a bicycle or by hand as well. The nice thing about making a wagon yourself is that you know how strong it is and how it will hole up over time. You dont have that reassurance with store bought anymore.

No way, I think this may have answered my partners prayers! We recently bought our first home together and when we did we said we wanted to be out on our own with some land....the ride on mower came as part of the package which we were delighted with but I don't think either of us knew what we were getting into with the ride on mower and the mess but we wouldn't change it! But i think my partner will like this idea!!
