For turning compost I don’t think anything works better. An absolute must I love our pitchfork!
2. Long handed Shovel
3. The FLAT-FREE Wheelbarrow
4. Hoe for weeding.
The Rogue Scuffle hoe has been one of the most recommended tools on my podcast.
Joyce Pinson was one of the first to talk about it! Mike uses what I like to call the claw for weeding. I guess the official name is a cultivator hoe. One of these days I will probably invest in a scuffle hoe for him!
5. Spray bottle-mister
6. Garden gloves
I like to wear gloves for just about everything. Lots of days I don’t put them on, but for the most part I prefer to work in gloves. And when I don’t I know my skin feels so much dryer. But I just like to have them to protect my fingers and hands.
My mom got me these Cutco Pruners for Christmas this year and there is nothing more fun then snipping with these. They made the lilacs cut like butter!
I found our broadfork on sale at amazon and it was the best investment I think I’ve made! It was such a great deal and we use it almost every day it seems! I definitely use it in just about every bed I plant!
9. Compost bin
My favorite bin is right outside my kitchen door I frequently just empty my compost while I’m cooking!
Bonus #10! A good collecting basket.
And I like to have several different kinds. Mike dreams of us having wash station down by the garden so the water is recycled right back into the garden and the soil too!
We have a red tray that is just perfect for washing greens and beets etc.
And then I like these wicker baskets for hauling broccoli, lettuce and peppers, etc up to the house.
I suppose these should be in order of importance but they are not in any particular order, other then the way I thought of them as I worked around the garden for the last 2 years because that is when I actually started this post ;) Writing blogs posts is not my strengths but I’m getting there!
