Exterior

Strap One On0

I like working in the yard.  I’m also a bit scatter-brained.  So I can see myself walking into the local market to get beer after a day in the garden —with this thing attached to my butt.

 

This is the Wearable Gardening Stool , a portable seat designed to save your aching back.

Originally developed as a cow milking aid by the University of Wisconsin’s Healthy Farmers, Healthy Profits Project (egad—that’s quite a mouthful!), the stool soon found its way into the garden.

The design is simple.  A soft nylon harness is attached to an 11.5 x 7.5 inch seat.  The harness has molded holes to adjust the fit snuggly to the wearer which allows for easy walking and sitting.  A pedestal leg with a coil spring at its base is attached to the bottom of the seat.  It can be adjusted from 13 to 18 inches in height.

The seat weighs only 4 pounds—but can handle a hefty 250 pounds.

I put in about three hours pulling weeds the other day.  My back is killing me.  I think it may be worth the $59 plus shipping needed to get a Wearable Garden Stool.

I’ll just have to make sure I take it off before walking to the convenience store.
