Earthway Hand Operated Bag Spreader/Seeders #2750
I've walked past that 50 lb bag of pelletized lime in the barn for several months now. It belongs on the grass, yes, the grass with the 5.2 pH! I just couldn't bear the thought of one more contraption taking up room in the tiny garden shed so I never bought a spreader. Also, it's hard to get motivated to grow "lawn" when there are so many other more interesting things to grow. Now I'm faced with looking at that bag of lime all winter or forking over the dough to get the job done.
This hand-operated spreader from Earthway seems like a good solution. At 4 lbs, it won't wear me out and it has a shoulder strap as well. I'll use it for the lime pellets and also for broadcasting a cover crop on the garden. Best of all, it doesn't have a motor (no maintenance) or long handles to tangle with all the other long handles in the shed. At $29.91, this spreader/seeder seems like the best choice.
