Was wondering what may be the three garden tools you just can not live with out....I have many as I am sure we all do as gardeners...but if you could only keep three what would they be.
For me number one is my little round end hoe, shovel of course and then hachet.
I'm with Sharon & debe on this my tiller is a must and yes my hands. They are always with me and...... I can use them for many chores in the garden. The other would be a good cut shovel. I like to give my plants new homes from time to time so that is on I can't live without!
At Big Old house we just moved from we had 5 acers...Thankfully we found a very nice used rider and it was heaven sent....when we bought this place, it is under 1 acer so I gave the rider to our neighbor by the old house...although it could be used here...I have to say I missed walking to mow...
Three is not enough..my hands, tiller, and hoe...then.. my shovel, rake and last but not least..riding mower..got to have all of these, no exceptions. Ohh shucks..I want my tractor too..I have a biggggg garden to plant!
I have a "miners pick" which I use for just about everything - my second fav tool is my mantis tiller,as I see many others have mentioned too! Then, I have a hand garden claw that I got at Lee Valley and I just love it as it breaks up soil like no other hand tool.
They are a very small red spider, Kathryn. I remember them well from when I was a kid. We are truly blessed here in Oregon because we can lie down in the grass and romp with the dogs if we want to and have no fear of those chiggers. I couldn't do that in Texas.
I'd have to say my hands, a trowel (I have about 5 including the one in my kitchen), and my grandmother's small shovel I used to love playing with when I was a kid. It's a nostalgia factor as well as using something that was used historically on the property. I have several yard tools like that. You only said 3 though.
Hmmmmm... this is a toughie, but my number one hands-down favorite "tool" for the garden is DH! LOL!!!! He does so much to make new flower beds possible for me and is even gracious about giving up more lawn, since I convinced him "it's less grass to mow"!
Next would be my hand spade and a D handled small digging fork.
