The other big project, which has been on my list for a long time, was building a drip tape roller. I've been borrowing farmer Rick's too often, and I'd promised him I would make my own. (He's such a nice guy he didn't seem to mind, but I felt bad always running off with his roller.)
Thanks to The Rebuilding Center, lumber for the project cost less than $5. The biggest expense was the purchase of a circular saw, but that's the kind of tool any farmer should have around, so I'm glad to say I now have one.
