Dirt Maker

Yep, you heard me right. I spent Sunday afternoon building this fancy device for sifting dirt. A dirt maker. Our soil is really rocky here so every time I dig a hole to plant something I have to pick out the rocks by hand before I deposit the "old" dirt in the compost. My son built something similar so I pirated his design and made one for myself. I think I can make some mighty fine dirt with this - don't you think?
