  1. My favourite garden tool is a home made job, probably made in the 1930’s. I use to garden for folk, had 12 gardens at that time great fun, I had a really lovely old lady who I am sure only wanted me there for tea cake and a chat, which I never refused . But one day she gave me a tool which her husband made her and that was a hand fork attached to a beautifully turned long handle, you cannot believe how useful this is.

  2. I agree with your choices and also how important to buy quality. I’m still using some tools my father passed on to me…. as well as his love of gardening.

  3. I am not a very good gardner — but not for lack of trying. I probably have every garden tool on the market. I guess overkill might be just one more reason I struggle with my garden every year. Love your blog.

  4. You are so right! I have almost no yard at all so i tried to do a kitchen garden with herbs in big pots last year but in the end the constant watering and dry spells managed to kill everything, so i had to start over from scratch this year. I decided to grow food (herbs ) not a flower bed and am trying to get a new set established as permanent beds. But with the weather going directly from winter to mid-summer over night and skipping spring this year altogether certainly didn’t help much. i have a feeling i will be back here all the time until November lol
