Right now, today. We all know it changes for most of us, depending. Just looking for a bit of distraction to keep me from tromping about the garden and cutting down stalks too early!

Well it is my gloves, since I prefer working with my hands.

Hmmm... good question. I'm not sure about my favorite, but definitely one of my most used last summer was my wheelbarrow! I'd have a very hard time getting along without it. At least until I've completely filled up this yard with better stuff then grass :-)

HORI! Must have my hori-hori!!!

It can do just about anything - dig, plant, cut roots, heck on weeds - in any soil!

Just ask the folks who watched me whip it out last spring at the swap and dig geum out of the wet soil and gravel!

Love my garden knife!

Though I can see already my home-made weed killer (tongs with sponge attached to ends with rubber bands - dip in roundup and stroke along undesirable plant) is going to get much use--quackgrass is up and green, curse it's avaricious little designs!

Hori hoi without a doubt.

A five gallon plastic pail. I can mix in it, haul plants in it, flip it upside down and sit on it, protect a plant nearby while digging, again flipping it upside down, I can carry tools in it, I can carry water in it, I can mix fertilizer in it, I can haul picked flowers in it, I can bring home plants from the neighbors in it. Want me to go on? ;)
Second best is my soil scoop...., maybe....

My Glide-N-Groom hoe. If you haven't tried one, you should.

It's gotta be the beer bottle opener. Nothing better than enjoying the garden view from the deck with a cold one. LOL

Well, rasslinmama, on that note I would have to say my corkscrew! (I am a wine drinker) Ha!
I always carry one in my purse, too. You know, for "emergencies"!

What's a Hori Hoi? I googled it but came up blank.
