Sh!ttiest Valentine's Day present EVAR / Spread the love

YOU GUYS. This is my Valentine's day present:

Not the tractor, that was Valentine's day 2 years ago. The thing behind it.

You know what that is? That, my non-hobby-farm-friends, is a manure spreader.

Oh, how I love thee.

Lest you crucify my dear, darling, wonderful, thoughtful husband, I asked for this to be my present. You have no idea how much of a PITA it is to spread composted manure by hand, using just a wheelbarrow and a rake. It's time consuming and tiring. This spreader is basically life-changing.

He even assembled it for me, and I've been gleefully spreading the love ever since!


See that thinly, evenly spread tiny chopped up manure bits? You have no idea how happy this makes me.

Note: I actually threatened my husband that if he ever spent that much money on jewelry, I'd kill him in his sleep. A girl's gotta have priorities, right?

  1. That is AWESOME!!! A girl after my own heart... if my husband buys me jewelry I get irritated, but a MANURE SPREADER!? That's a wonderful gift!

  4. There's no rule that says he couldn't have got you chocolate AND a manure spreader, is there? I'd say flowers, but they'd probably be broccoli florets...

  13. My husband also knows better than to buy me jewelry. Alas, we just don't celebrate Valentine's day so I didn't get a manure spreader either.

    1. For us it's more of an excuse to get something we really want and would use a lot but don't "need". If that makes sense.

  16. My SO is also one for practical gifts. He has never given me any type of jewelry! 100% of the electronic and appliances (minus the stove and fridge) in my house are thanks to him.
