Too cold and wet to work in the yard or gardens, so cleaning out the back of the garage where old things seem to get stored for years and years. Having gardened for well over 50 years, plus inheriting many tools from my father, I seem to have accumulated a lot of garden tools that now seem to be antiques. Standing in the corner is a very old and well worn Broadfork that I remember spending many a day using it to loosen the garden soil to incorporate various amendments. Standing nearby is a very old Sears & Roebuck (remember them?) garden seeder that was used to plant row after straight row of beans, corn, radishes, etc., with each seed perfectly spaced. Hanging on the wall just above the seeder is an old Cranberry Picker that hasn't been used for a couple generations - it came from my grandfather's gardening days. And, of course, there is a collection of trenching shovels, pitch forks, potato forks, etc., etc., etc.. Why, there is even an old 8Hp Troy-Bilt rototiller - one of the cast iron ones from before Troy-Bilt went out of business and was purchased by MTD. As we moved from large in-ground gardens to efficient raised beds, more and more old garden tools joined the Hall of Garden Antiquities. Maybe it is time to sell some of the old antiques....Nah, not yet....

When we bought this house, it came with an old push mower with a grass catcher on the back. I think it will become yard art with a flower garden in the catcher.
