OK, Treegals way of taking out of the box items and making them work for your purposes and then saving a ton of money, ie. experimentations, has inspired me. I think I may have found my new compost topdresser, or at least a mini version to mess around with. I was helping my in-laws move some furniture they were replacing into their basement and found an old scotts drop spreader. I being the young one that I am have never seen one like this before and thought it was quite interesting. I will try and post some pics. I think it may work. We shall see.
