Gardening season is about to be in full-swing here! New garden gear is always such a great motivator to get outside and get digging. Here are some things that caught my eye!
I have to admit that a lot of my garden gear is in rough shape this spring. I was going through one of my bins the other day and I discovered that I have pairs of gloves that are missing their other half, broken soil scoops, and just missing items from different categories, here and there. When it comes to garden gear, like pretty much with everything else, I like the idea of investing slowly and picking up items that really bring you joy, do the job well, and will last for years to come. Some of the things that come to mind are the sturdy pair of old shovels that we have that we just really couldn’t live without, and my favorite square all-weather planters that just look great no matter what I put in them. I have to admit that our garden tool organization isn’t always the best because Chris, I, and the kids all use the same tools and we just don’t have a cohesive system for organizing that everyone can easily stick to. I’m working on it. 🙂 I thought a few new pieces for the garden might make it a little extra fun to get out and get digging this year, and maybe also inspire me to work on our garden gear organization a little bit more. Here are some things that piqued my interest, and a few I already own that I thought would be helpful to share.
Garden Gear Inspiration
A few things I have to talk about specifically: This folding wheelbarrow is such a clever idea, especially if you have a small, multi-use garage like we do that just never seems to be able to fit everything. The trusty bucket hat is an absolute must this year if you’ve found yourself inadvertently part of the “coastal grandmother” trend like I have. (Look it up if you haven’t heard of it yet. Hilarious, but amazing!) Garden dibbers and soil scoops have been among some of my favorite unexpected garden tool discoveries over the years. So satisfying to use and so effective at what they do! Have always wanted to learn how to make use of a hori hori knife in the garden. It just seems like a tool used by people who really know their stuff. I don’t know why, but I’ve always wanted a pair of these clogs for the garden. Not crocs and not anything similar but different. These specifically seem exactly perfect. Although obviously I’ll stick to my tried-and-true Hunter boots (I buy the kids’ boots for my size 6 feet) for rainy days. Could not live without those around here.
