I don't know about the rest of you, but I've long pondered over and searched for some kind of tote/bag/thing that I could use for gardening. Something that I could carry around with me on my sojourns into the garden, something that I could carry a few necessities in, something that would save me leaving scissors, pruners, and weeding tools all over the place and not being able to find them when I want them!
I purchased one such 'tote bag' a few years ago that was specifically designed for this, but the pockets weren't nearly deep enough and the whole bag was very light and collapsed onto itself much too easily. I looked at anther one this spring that is like a little apron that you put over the sides of a standard sized bucket (and especially made for gardening), but it seemed kind of cheap and shabby when I looked at in the store.
When I mentioned what I was looking for to my husband he said they sell a thing like that in the automotive section, something that's meant for tools but goes on a bucket. So I checked it out. I always carry my little bucket around with me - I'm sure you all do - to put weeds and deadheaded flowers in.
I bought it and it works absolutely perfectly for me! This is what I bought and how I use it:
|"bucket organizer" purchased in the automotive section at|
Canadian Tire (probably there are many makes of this type of thing sold at automotive stores
|organizer placed over top of a standard five-gallon plastic pail|
|plant markers, permanent marker and pruners fit nicely|
|organizer just slips over the pail|
|my smaller deadheading pail...|
|...slips easily inside, and can be removed for dumping in the composter|
I'm wondering if any of you might find this useful as well or if you have something that works really well for you, what is it?
