These are my favorite garden tools
sprayed the handles red, handles have been
taped over and over again.
Shovel, hoe and 3 tin hand cultivator on a long handle
and no one is to use them
but me - because they were my first
and over 50 years old. Recently sharpened
and extra careful using them.
Small rake, very old that was my mother's.
A basket filled with newer similar tools
for anyone helping me to use and also a new weed eater
which I can no longer use. 2 pair of loppers to cut
Battery always charged and ready for my small blower.
This is easier then using a broom and also use in garden.
My old shop vacuum is wonderful for garage and porch floors
and car and pickup cleanup.
A couple of old wheel barrows and my one gallon sprayer which
is easy to carry.
Could not work outside or inside without my ever sharp "Joyce Chen scissors"
mine are over 20 years old, always sharp and after losing another pair I have
red reflection tape on the handle. Always in my pocket when outside.
No one gets to use these but me...
They are always sharp and can cut
anything, small branches, wire and sometimes use in the kitchen if cutting
up a whole chicken. Will cut through bone in an instant.
I have a small kitchen knife (Joyce Chen) but for some reason the
scissors are easier and safer for me to handle. Can order from Amazon.
Also a special small pair of clippers - always extra sharp, great in garden
and also cutting small branches
were my mother's. Her small heavy hand held sledge hammer
is a prize as I could not - no way- swing a full handle size.
I can handle this hammer and recently used it putting stakes around
garden to hold boards upright.
Something new I do is save empty gallon bottles. Fill with water
and pull into garden in my old little red wagon to water plants in pots. Do this many times instead
of using hose.
Do other's have special old tools they love to use and will not share?
