Getting plowed

It wasn’t too long ago where I was getting tanked.  Now I am getting plowed.  The underlying theme there makes me wonder if I have been working a bit too much lately (the answer is yes).  But really, I got plowed this week.

I acquired 2 old plows and I am trying to decide what to do with them.1  I have considered turning them into mailbox stands and/or planters for flowers out at the property.  That might clash with the bathtub and toilet planters I have in mind though.  Then it occurs to me that I might be able to restore them and use the kids to pull the plows to turn over some garden space.  I guess I could use the Subaru instead of the kids.  We’ll see.  Anyhow, I guess a third option is to paint them up and make them sort sort of decoration inside whatever building we eventually build on the property.

So what do you think?  Do you have any other ideas?  They are too cool to junk but I just do not know what to do with them.  Help!

  1. Weld them together with a few other scraps of metal and make some sort of giant yard art out of them. Those could be the hands.

  2. There is a house I drive by on the way to my Bible study that has quite a few around a big tree in the front yard.
    It looks like a bunch of Amish farmers just parked them there and are inside having lunch.

    I don’t recommend it.

  3. Pedal Power (Rodale Press, 1977) shows how to use a pedal operated winch to pull the plow, guided by a second person. So using the kids may not be that far-fetched and very low-carbon. (From my eccentric but occasionally useful library.)

  4. Definatly hook the kids up, What better family fun?
    Or maybe make lifesized sillouettes of the family pulling the plow and a horse steering it…LOL
