Made sort of like the third video but mine is a three by five foot sheet of 1/2 plastic coated screen inside a 6 inch mesh tomato cage, the screen is longer so no coarse stuff gets into the wheelbarrow. Some fines fall outside but not much. I think I may try a combination of the first two videos.

Looks suspiciously like a chili pepper roaster to me.

Chili roasters have a long off season, I might try to borrow one. LOL

Ingenius!!

I long ago tired of shacking the large commercial bread loaf carrier---let the boys man handle it these days. Bet one of my boys would make this new design!

I found out that because the 1/2 inch screen is inside the tomato cage it bounces in addition to rolling.
