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!
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."
