Hay Wagon Backboard"My son and I wanted a basketball hoop but we didn't have a flat paved spot on our farm," says Donald J. Ten Kate, Freeville, N.Y., who came up with an innovative solution.
"We live on a quiet back road so I mounted a backboard on the back of a hay wagon so that now, whenever we want to play basketball, we roll the wagon out to the edge of the road and use the road as our court.
"I just cut out a piece of plywood for the backboard, mounted it on a pair of 2 by 4's, and attached a hoop. During haying season, we unbolt the backboard so we can fit the wagon in the barn for unloading. Takes just minutes to take down."
