Sometimes winter in Oklahoma leaves us wondering what just happened...
It can be 6 seasons in one day here, or at least it seems like it.
I hate to complain about the weather, unless it's over 100* for more than a day in a row, then everyone is grumpy.
My only real problem with winter is having to bundle up to the point my movement is hampered and having to break ice in stock tanks.
Otherwise, I just usually end up wishing we had more snow. We seldom have enough moisture in winter. If it does snow, it's all dumped on us at one time in a dangerous blizzard, then melts so fast, it leaves slop behind to drive through.
Make sure it has a solid tire. You won't have to find the right fitting tire later on.
Always store your wheelbarrow upside-down or in a shed. If it rains, it will rust along with everything in it.

- The pointy shovel that really digs into the dirt and picks it up.
- The flat shovel for more shallow work. It will pick up a bit more and you can move sod with it.
- The big scoop shovel to scoop the bunny and goat droppings and sprinkle over the garden with. (Plus it works for clearing snow in the winter.)
I hope this is a help to you. If you have a favorite tool I haven't mentioned, please leave a comment below. (Tractors don't count! ...thought they are definitely nice to have...)
