I'll take two please!



Everyone with a garden needs a wheelbarrow. I need at least three.

At this time of year I have two permanently filled with logs, and I need another one for 'general duties'.

I also have two retirees that double as strawberry planters.

I've just bought the two above. Wheelbarrow aficionados will have noticed that they are Skoda Barrows, with the twin exhausts.

If you don't already know the joke; DON'T ASK.

  1. I wonder for how long the wheelbarrows will remain that shining.
    I don't know the joke but, I won't ask.

    1. They are supposed to be galvanised (anti rust), but it doesn't take them long to look like scrap metal.

    1. I'll bear that in mind. Keep my harrow bandles low!

    2. They ride easier if you do and less strain on your back. Years of barrowing silage taught me that.

  4. I am not asking but I did guggle Skoda Barrows, without any meaningful result.

    1. Good. You'd have groaned for a week.

  5. They should be called Volkswagen wheelbarrows. Volkswagen bought them out.

    I am also the proud of owner of three wheelbarrows.

    1. My first car was a Beetle; luckily they escaped all the Skoda jokes.

    3. The last Strawberry planter only became such because I couldn't find a spare wheel. I did find one on line, but it was almost as much as a whole new barrow.

  7. I don't know the joke, but I knew a guy who drove a Skoda. It burned up.
    Yes, everyone needs more than one wheelbarrow. I like the kind with two wheels at the front which is more stable for me when moving very heavy loads around. -Jenn

    1. An old school friend of mine ran the Skoda Rally Team... they were very successful. Their reputation wasn't entirely deserved.

  8. After sending two rusted out wheelbarrows to the scrap yard, I bought a poly one that serves me very well. I have had it for over five years, almost looks new, and will definitely outlast me. I wish I had two but it is a space issue.

    1. I did consider buying a 'modern' plastic one, but eventually decided it would have looked out of place in my rustic garden.

  9. ok, ok, I will tell it then. These are from when I was a kid.

    What do you call a Skoda with no roof...
    A Skip.

    What do you call a Skoda at the top of the hill?
    A mirage

    baboom ting!

    This is why I cant buy a Skoda Yeti 4x4 even though my friend has one and says its fabulous, or even that the Octavia was car of the year for YEARS. I cant buy one. Now lets think of Lada jokes as well...

    Jealous of the wheel barrows

    1. OK, mine was 'What do you call a Skoda with twin exhausts; a Wheelbarrow'.

  10. I do not own a wheelbarrow having nowhere to keep it. Instead I use a large plastic bag. Seems to work so far.

    1. What cc is it? We're still fighting WW1 over here; a little backward.

  12. I have an old barrow with a flat front tire and a new barrow with an ineradicable squeak.

    1. That's why mine became Strawberry planters!

  13. I wish I could plant strawberries like you and your garden but the packrats eat and destroy everything.
    Evil little buggers.
