I’ve been on the hunt for that great, new gardening tool for this upcoming season. And I’ve found myself overwhelmed by the number of tools out there. It got me thinking, what’s with all these tools anyway? I mean, gardeners long ago got by using just their hands and maybe some sort of shovel.
I’ve found a lot of products, read a lot of reviews and I’m unsure of what all the fuss is about. Seems to me like all you need are a few staples, like a pruner, trowel and shovel.
