            We had to pick fruit from 4 citrus trees. This was great for washing fruit quickly.

            Pros

            • Easy to clean
            • Easy To Hold And Manage
            • Sturdy

            Cons

            • I should have bought 2

            Best Uses

            • Carrying Produce
            • Mixing Growing Materials
            • Washing My Angora Hair

            I bought this trug strainer and companion trug for garden uses and for cleaning fibers I shear off my angora and pygora goats. The fibers have to be drained without agitating them, so the trug and trug strainer are perfect. Once I'm done with my shearing and fiber prep, I can easily clean them for garden use.

                Best Uses

                • Cleaning Veggies

                We live in Wisconsin and over-winter our carrots in the garden, covering them with straw & snow. Went out in below-zero temps to dig some up the day after Christmas. The colander and Tubtrug worked great. The carrots are very muddy so we brought 'em in, filled the Tubtrug with water, agitated the colander to loosen the mud, and lifted 'em out. Much easier than the usual process of agitating in a 5-gallon bucket and changing the water several times. We will also be using it in summer for peppers, tomatoes, and other veggies. Great idea.

                                I used this colander everywhere in the garden and yard, even to gather dog toys before mowing!

                                The most thrilling discovery was how perfectly it, together with the Tubtrug bucket, could clean greens! Greatly reduced the amount of dirt going down the kitchen drain.
