Losing my gardening tools and my mind

As the end of my gardening season approaches here in Ontario, I have begun to clean out my van and perform an inventory on my gardening tools.  This is also the time of the year when I realize just how bad my memory is when the number of gardening tools has dwindled and I have no idea where the missing ones are.  I tend to misplace several pairs of calipers (or hand clippers) a season.  Even though their handles are usually a bright red or orange, I manage to lose them in the gardens I work in.  I’m sure I have accidentally thrown some out in lawn waste bags.  This year I am disappointed to find that I have also managed to misplace my favourite edger and a handy short shovel…

I will have to send out an email to my clients begging them to check their tool sheds and gardens to see if my tools are hanging out with theirs.

  1. My plumber has left two shovels, the electrician left some nice wire cutters, and the cable guy left two screw drivers and a very good hammer. Never thought of hiring a gardener to increase my supply of garden tools.

    Thanks for the idea!
