Riddle me this!

Not long ago I took over a much overgrown and neglected allotment, a piece of land my local council/government office has to provide the community with. I decided to sieve my inherited soil to remove weeds and stones, but I hadn’t a riddler, a sieve, so I invented my own from found objects. This is my extreme invention. I found an old baker’s tray, normally used to carry loaves of bread to and from shop delivery trucks. To this I added some found chicken mesh, which is usually used to make chicken or pet cages or hutches.
