Flywheel garlic bearings with beeries

We had an early Spring this year, which matured our garlic crop a bit faster than previous years. 

I've used a push mower since I was a small lad, but only recently learned the secrets of Flywheel Key Replacement.

Our Club Car golf cart started making a weird noise, which prompted us to learn how to replace front wheel bearings.

A sad thing happened last week. Our beloved truck got sick and the diagnosis was fatal. We ended up crushing it.

Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton grow their own garlic and try to fix stuff when it breaks. They blog about such adventures at WaldenEffect.org and make a living by building and selling a new kind of automatic chicken waterer that is worth checking out if you have chickens and want them to drink clean water.
