Organizing Garden Tools

Week 16 - May 13th - May 18th - **Garden Tools/Garage Organizing** This week is a good time to look over the garage.  It has been a long winter and everything is beginning to bloom, so now is the time to get organized for your summer gardening projects.  We have just a little over a month before it is officially summer.  Winters are long here in Syracuse and I prefer to be outside as much as possible in the good weather.  Make sure all your tools are in working order.  Check those pruning shears, saw blades, etc.  Nothing worse than trying to clip down some bushes and the shears are dull!  I like to keep my outside tools I use on a constant basis in a bucket along with the leaf bags.  It makes it easier for me. I take out the tools and as I'm weeding fill up the bucket and then dump it into the leaf bags.  Try to set yourself up on some organizing schedule to keep up the weed maintenance in the yard, especially during rainy weather. I have used the black plastic liners, weed killer, and various other products, but no matter what they keep coming back! A few minutes weeding every couple of days saves having to weed for hours on the weekend.  Here's a great idea from Martha Stewart.

Tool Caddy

Create a mini gardening center that you can tote while you tend your plants.
Martha Stewart Living, March 2004
Create a mini gardening center that you can tote while you tend your plants. Start with a carpenter's nail belt, which has one big pocket: Measure the width of each tool, such as a trowel, then add an inch for extra space. Use a pen to mark widths on belt. Stitch along marks, creating several pockets. Tie the belt around a bucket, which you can use to hold larger items or to collect debris.
