So what's it all about?? A manure or 'muck' fork. I decided when I was down the plot that I needed one to make lighter work of spreading the manure as a garden forks prongs are quite thick so it makes digging into the heap quite hard.
Anyway after a lot of searching I found one on amazon for a bargain price of just £12.03. I was a little dubious as some of them go for around £60 but it had received good reviews so this is what I decided to go for.
Well It arrived by courier yesterday...It was very well packaged.....so well it took me nearly half an hour to open it. I had a friend visiting who was in absolute hysterics watching me and immediately got the camera out!!
The photos are a little blurry...I don't think I was moving at warp speed...I think Annie perhaps couldn't keep her hand still she was laughing so much!
The handles was wrapped and taped in plastic which was a major feat in itself to open...but then this self sticking plastic was wrapped around the blades.
I unwound FOREVER...and then realized my mistake...I had wound off the prongs and onto me....another set of giggles from Annie!!
But fianlly all was well and I had a manure fork stood proud in my kitchen. In total it's 5ft tall which is taller than me but it's nice and sturdy and I can't wait to try it out at the weekend. Needless to say on the packaging feedback for Amazon I only gave them 1star for ease of opening!
Finally just a couple of shots of my fire burning brightly on Sunday afternoon....
It took much longer than I anticipated to burn down and even though we have fire's in incinerators bins only we still aren't allowed to leave them unattended....so i was there after sunset but kept toasty round the fire!
