Click below to listen to my Garden Bite radio show: It’s shopping day
Yesterday we packed in the food like squirrels cache their nuts. We’re fueled up and ready for the challenge of the hunt! The hunt for the perfect gift at the perfect price. Wahoo, let the season begin!
While I always encourage local shopping – you may not always find exactly what you want. This is a link to Gardeners Supply that has a lot of ideas!
I’ve told you before that nothing beats a really good pair of pruners,
gloves that don’t immediately fall apart
and a garden fork.
However, there are some other fun garden gadgets to consider! I love rain chains. Consider making your own!
The Hori Hori knife comes highly recommended as a must have. A Japanese knife, it’s blade is razor sharp and is serrated for cutting through roots and tough soil. It’s used as a knife, a saw, a digging tool, or as a measuring device for planting bulbs. You can weed with it to.
I’d never turn down mid-calf rain boots or a counter compost crock. Books are another great gift for the gardener. I recommend anything by Jeff Gillman. Another book I recommend is “Turn Here Sweet Corn” by Atina Diffley.
