All Around the Homestead
I was tired of buckets of feed sliding on my ATV, so I came up with a simple device. Nail or screw three bucket lids to a piece of plywood and set the buckets on the lids to prevent them from sliding. The plywood is held in place by a pin.

I developed a composter using a 55-gallon plastic drum. I cut off the bottom, drilled eight holes about 2 inches in diameter, drilled half-inch holes through four pieces of PVC pipe for ventilation, and slid the pipes into the drum holes.

My hose was always popping out of the livestock tanks when I filled them. I now loop the hose through the two holes of a brick and drop the brick in the tank.

My husband cut 9-inch lengths of discarded PVC pipe and slit sections down the side to pry open and place around new fruit trees. This stymied the rabbits and other chewing animals.
