Talk about a gift that keeps on giving I love this gift for gardeners whether they are experienced or just a beginner starting compost for the first time. Using a compost thermometer allows you keep track of the temperature which helps you know exactly when to flip your compost. You will be getting fresh compost in record time with the help of Reotemp. This durable thermometer is easy to use and gives an accurate read. Plus, it doesn’t fog and it comes with a guide on how to start compost.
You can’t underestimate the value of a harvest basket, especially one as good as this Garden Hod. It’s a sturdy, hard-knock basket that is fit to take on the heaviest of harvests (i.e. a boatload of sweet potatoes), and is stylish enough to set out daily. The wire bottom makes it easy to rinse produce right inside the basket for easy cleaning. The Garden Hod is perfect for someone like me who likes to keep things (really everything) clean and in its best shape. Did I just find the perfect gift for the OCD farmer in your life?
The right shoe can make all of the difference in the world. My Keen shoes of eight years have bit the dust, and now that I’m shopping around Ryan has me eyeing the great shoes over at Bogs. They are waterproof with moister-wicking technology to keep your feet cool and dry to boot. An internal steel shank insures to protect your feet while taking on number of farm jobs. If you live with the gardener, you’ll be happy to know there is also odor fighters built within the shoe as well. All of this is backed by Bogs’ 100% satisfaction guarantee.
This one is on top of Ryan’s wishlist this year. The Hori-Hori knife is great for a laundry list of duties in the garden. It can cut out those deep weeds, split up transplants, cut smaller branches, and even dig small trenches. In addition the blade is marked in milliliters for planting depth. This is sure to be a gardener’s right hand man, just don’t let the pocket knife and garden trowel know that there’s a new boss in town, err, the garden. With a lifetime warranty, there will be endless seasons shared with this gift.
Getting all the tools from the shed to the garden can be a chore in itself sometimes. Even when balanced on a wheelbarrow, it isn’t the easiest of tasks. This shovel sling makes it a cinch to carry all your tools at once and with more control. The affordable and easy to use strap comes with a 1 year warranty. The shovel sling quickly turns a two man job into one. Um, yes please!
Keeping a record of what goes on year to year in garden can be an invaluable resource. It’s a great way to remember what you grew in what beds over the past seasons as well as your successes and failures. This journal is broken down into 5 sections and can be customized with hundreds of adhesive labels. This hardcover journal will last for years and will help you keep a garden log and a full inventory of your growing plant collection.
The Broadfork has been something that we have wanted for the a long time now. This amazing tool for tilling and aerating makes the tough work of working a planting bed a breeze. It is darn near drool worthy the way it works soil so delicately without destroying the soil structure. Broadforks can help you quickly prepare a bed without even straining your back by allowing you to utilize your body weight. (Say goodbye to double digging.)This tough broadfork from Meadow Creature features heavy tines perfect for breaking up hardpan clay. It doesn’t hurt one bit that Meadow Creature offers a lifetime warranty. We sure love tools built for a lifetime.
