What A Tool

Gardeners Tote

Keeping all those tools close by for garden work with a vintage tote.

I’m not going to lie, I can’t locate my favorite clippers!

How do you keep those tools handy?

  1. Currently, all my garden tools are cloistered in a very lame file box that they were packed in when we moved from the lake and then again from the condo. Finally! I get to dust them off. I’ve always wanted a peg board though, with little outlines of stuff hanging…very old school 😀

  2. I have a habit of using a tool, such as pruners, and then just laying it down wherever I happen to be. I always carry a bucket around with me when I garden to tote water for fresh plantings, sprigs to plant, etc. I finally decided the best thing to do was to carry all my necessary tools in the bucket, do what I have to do, then put the tools back in. They get taken in and out en masse as I work, but it keeps everything together at the end of the day.

    1. Keep your eyes open, sometimes the perfect tote idea can be found other places then a garden center.
      Poke around some antique shops for old wood tool boxes. They look great in the garden and so handy!

    1. Makes me laugh Audrey….with home remodel under way around here…”where is the tape measure?’, ” I just had my utility knife!”, etc!!! I either know where it is or have to run around looking!
      Found this cute tote in Wisconsin while driving practically across the entire state to get to OshKosh.

    1. Oh, love old tackle boxes! I keep one in my greenhouse with all the little do dads! That’s a technical term.
      I wish I had my grandpa’s old tackle box. I think that’s why I like them, it was like hunting in a treasure box when I was a kid.
