"Bathtub" Soil Mixer
Roman Barvinchack uses an old cast iron bathtub to mix the soil for his garden beds. He mounted wheels on back and wooden handles on front so he can use it like a wheelbarrow. He came up with the idea because ordinary wheelbarrows are too small to mix up large quantities of soil, compost, and other ingredients. “The bathtub is heavy even when it’s empty, so I never fill it with soil and move it. Instead, I move the bathtub to the hole and then make the soil mixture,” says Barvinchack.
