Favorite gardening tool has to be this funky weed popper/knife that the boyfriend's mom got for me. That thing is a beast.

My wife!  

 

I don't really touch the garden if I can avoid it.  I would pour concrete from the house to the front curb and replace the entire back yard with deck/patio if I were allowed to...  so I leave the care of green things that grow to my wife.

Well, it depends what I'm using it for...

 

Yard needs mowing/trees & bushes trimmed? Checkbook

 

Something needs to be propped up? Hoe.

 

My kids need exercise and sunshine? Hand edger, non-powered. :devil:

 

Burying needs doing? Shovel.

Wow, that's an industrial scale one. :blink:

 

Mine is much smaller and handcrafty, like so:

You use it to poke holes in the ground to plant bulbs.

What? Oh.  I grabbed the wrong thing for that.

I don't need tools. I have these hands.

7/13: honestly, I've used a scythe for clearing brush and I've gotta say, it's tremendously motivating.

IT's also rather a lot of fun.

The chickens are a surprisingly effective garden tool (they eat bugs, dispense fertilizer and break up thatch), but I have a fondness for my scythe. It is fun to use, if nothing else. ^^;

Either the weed whacker or the hose.

No, scratch that: the dog doesn't get all excited and want to play with the weed whacker. Get the HOSE out to water the tomatoes, and she has to chase the stream and bite it, and I play it all over the back yard, watering all the plants, and she chases that thing and bites the stream until she's soaking wet and spluttering and coughing like she's drowning.

Every day, if I go in the back yard after about twelve noon, she comes out and whines until I turn on the hose.

My favourite has to be a machete from back when I could work outside. Close second would be a ditch bank blade, or fauchard (I think that's the name). It resembles a bill but it's way more sturdier. Some people have gardens. I had a forest.

July 13th: I found an old school double handed scythe at a church sale and during my younger years it was my go to for weed destruction. Also intimidated the neighbors.
