My favorite tool is pictured below, would you call this a hoe? My favorite one has a longer handle, but otherwise same as pictured. It basically is a multitool, I use it for weeding, preparing for sowing and planting. If I would be allowed only one gardingtool this would be it.

I have been using this little hand hoe a lot this season. I bought it last year, but it stayed in my tool bag until I was looking for my sharpener this spring. I "rediscovered" it and used it at work for cutting weeds out of a waist high rock terrace bed. It worked so well it is my new go to tool for fine work.
I used it yesterday planting my peppers too.

Those Dutch know how to make a nice tool!

That is one cool looking little hoe. Just looked these guys up and they make some really interesting tools. Definitely going on the wish list! Thanks for sharing!

I was gardening this morning and I've got a new favorite garden tool. Tool purists may claim it's not a tool, but meh. I got a new garden bag this past Christmas - it's the red one from Lee Valley that I suppose many have seen in the catalog if you receive them.

This garden bag is simply the most useful garden bag I've ever owned and I've had several. I'm not one for leaving reviews, but I can say that this bag will be with me for a long time as it's incredibly well thought out and well constructed. Now I certainly am extraordinarily fond of the items it's holding, but I have to say...the bag is my new favorite tool (taking the spot from this really medieval looking mini Japanese garden hoe which I still love).View attachment 31892
Mine will be my friend's shovel. he gave it to me 2 years ago. And I still have it in our toolbox. In fact I don't wanna use it. :D

I love your red garden tool bag! I never spoiled myself with one, but I should! :)
