This year, for Christmas, my husband got me a tractor scoot from Gardener's Supply Company. It wasn't a random choice on his part -- he asked what I wanted and I told him!
Today I got a chance to try it out and I love it!
It features a tractor style seat, which swivels, pneumatic tires, an area underneath the seat to hold tools etc and a basket on the front which you can put a bucket in to hold mulch, plants, trash/weeds etc.
I've been having knee problems this year, which has made gardening somewhat difficult, but this little tractor scoot really helps me out, as you can see below.
If they manage to come back up, I'll take that as a sign I was meant to have more milkweed.
Tomorrow, after we take our Christmas lights down, I'll work in the front flowerbed. It needs some serious tidying up!
I wish you all a safe and Happy New Year. I'll see you in 2012, when I'll be out in the garden again!
