My Mantis tiller is a great toy. But it wraps weeds and mud around the blades and it is difficult to clean. I was trying to till the space under a metal section that I am going to use for my gourds this year. I kept having to clean it out because it stops if it gets too full of stuff.
I got a hoe and chopped the weeds and turnips out of the place. I totally cleaned the tiller...again. I couldn't start it after all that. I was vividly picturing throwing away the gourd seeds. I had spent a couple of hours on this hopeless task.
So I went to get a quart of green paint, gloves, my little trolley I sit on, a disposable paint brush, and started painting tires in my tire garden. I painted one in each stack. The next day we have a day without rain, I'm going to paint the one above the green a bright yellow.
