Wherever I have lived I always had a garden. Even when I lived in a 300 square foot studio in Hells Kitchen Manhattan I had herbs and tomatoes in pots on my fire escape. I find gardening to be very relaxing. Reap what you sow. Do you have a favorite garden tool? This past season I found I have been putting to good use my garden trug, or as the Brits say "trog". I purchased mine from William Sonoma last season. I have a very small garden considering I do live in Brooklyn. So my true serves many purposes. Not just collecting harvest. I tend to our back garden and I also am responsible for the front area for our coop. My trug carries my tools, seeds, knee pad and gloves. Quite handy when I am traveling from the back yard, downstairs, upstairs to the front outside garden area.
I wish I needed another trug because there are some beautiful ones on the market right now.
And finally some samples from the Natural Gardener in the UK.
Do you use a trug? What is your favorite gardening tool?
