Not Your Average Gardening Tools

By Xeramtheum

I have a tendency to look at pretty much every sort of tool as a possible garden tool. Over the years I've tried out just about everything, but I have whittled it down to about 9 tools I use consistently.

My near vision is iffy, so I carry a magnifying glass when I am hand pollinating to make sure I put the pollen on the receptacles. I also keep my Machete close by this time of year. It whacks large weeds and saplings out of my way.

Alana I used to use a magnifying glass until I had my cataract surgery .. everyone in the family thought I was nuts asking the doc to keep me nearsighted when most people opt for 2020. I have such good closeup vision now I can actually see individual grains of pollen and even the texture of the pollen without wearing glasses!

Like the machete idea too!
