Drying Out Day 1 and I Need Some Small Tire Advice
By late morning the combination of the Sun and pleasantly warm and dry Southwest wind had already begun drying out the high areas of the garden. By mid Afternoon I was actually able to walk out into the tilled soil a little ways without sinking down very far. It was still too wet to work up or plant in but it came a long way in only one dry morning.
The humming birds are also back and I am totally unprepared for them as I forgot to replace my busted feeders from last year. The Red buds are in full bloom and had bees working them today and the apples are now leafed out and beginning to bloom themselves. Only the real hardwoods like the oaks, hickory and walnut have yet to sprout leaves and their buds are begging to open as well.
The next item on my fix or repair list now is my wheel barrow tires. I have a really nice wheel barrow one of those with the twin front tires but both of them went flat this Winter and will not hold air. I am not sure if the bead is just not sealing or if there is an actual hole but they go flat pretty damned fast. I was going to just purchase some never flat tires for it but the rims on the tires have a pretty good sized sleeve sticking out from them and I am not sure the new ones I can get will fit.
any ideas on what to do out there? I have zero experience with little utility tires like these and that extension that goes over the drive shaft looks permanently attached so buying new tires with the rims already on seems useless as they won't fit. I thought about filling the tires with something but I just don't know what my options are and as I said I have no experience in this area of little cheap utility tires.
I kinda need the wheel barrow up and running for my next projects.
Anyway guess I will keep researching this.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
