Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Some Tools For Gardening

For a lot of people next month starts the gardening season and to garden "properly" you need to have the right tools. Whether it is shovels, rakes, buckets or wheelbarrows you have to have tools. Like my dad always told me...."you have to have the right tools for the right job". And the best tools made are the old tools. So here are a few ideas from the wonderful vintage shops on Etsy.

The first tool you will need is a shovel to turn the dirt. The ShabbyChicLife has the perfect shovel for that. 

Now if you have a small garden in pots or flowers in pots you will need a small shovel or trowel as they are called and a claw rake. Outdated has the perfect tools for this job. 

Now....we have to water our vegetables and flowers and VintageSouthwest can (no pun intended!) help with this. 

No gardening job is clean so you will need a good apron to help keep that dirt off of you and CoffeeColorCadillac has the perfect apron for you. 

Last, but not least.....when the flowers need to be cut and the vegetables need to be harvested you will need something to carry them in. TheGayDivorcee has the perfect basket for that. 

So get your gardening tools ready because next week we are going to have a few tutorials on how to plant those gardens! 

Have a great week!
