We have pallets. We don’t have many, but we do get 3-5 a winter because we get pellets for our stove. It was so nice the other day that I decided I would grab out a pallet and tear it apart. My plan was to build a turkey tractor out of it. I needed something for when the babies are not really babies, but teenagers and hawks would still find them a great meal.
I grabbed a crowbar, a hammer, and started working. OMG are you serious?? Who does this?? Well I know of at least one person who reads my blogs that uses pallets. He is Mike from The Tiny Homesteaders. I know he can’t possibly be tearing apart all these pallets to use unless he is like the incredible hulk.
I consider myself a fairly strong person. You give me a crowbar and a hammer and I can usually tear apart anything! Do you know they use twisted nails in those things? For those of you girly homesteaders that have no idea what I am talking about. It would be like trying to pull a screw out of a board. I say use screws! At least then I could get them out!!
So my day consisted of removing two boards off that pallet before I decided it’s not worth it at this point. With the ground still too frozen to run fencing for my rotational grazing, I hung out with the kittens and chickens. I cleaned out my garden of the old tomato plants, took out the tomato cages, and pulled up my landscape cloth between my rows. At least part of the day was productive!
(Mike I need tips or I’m going to grab a saw and just cut down the sides!) 🙂
Happy Homesteading!! 😀
