so much depends...

upon a red wagon
that used to carry children













































and now carries
water
toys
garden tools
branches for the goats
buckets of weeds
chicken feed
and
kelp for the cows




How do you haul?

  2. Looks like it's getting good use. We sold our little wagon at a yard sale. Guess I'd have to turn to the wheelbarrow for hauling.

  3. One of these days I'm going to post the beautiful old wagon Ty has fun pulling behind his Kabota.

    I love what you did to the photos. I'm going to take some shots to intentionally try this on.

    Thanks for linking.

    1. Thanks! I use Lightroom and was a little frustrated that I couldn't get all the flesh tones out of the first photo. I still have a lot to learn!

  4. One of my favorite poems. Bobo hauls his things in his John Deere gator.

    1. Oh, there are days I wish for a gator! If we ever end up with a small herd of cattle, the little red wagon will probably be retired to the garden. :)

    2. Woops - I just checked your blog and am assuming you meant a child's gator! Ha! Love your book recommendations, BTW!

  5. Our little red wagon holds pots of oxalis plants.

    I usually use a wheelbarrow to haul my stuff. :)
