Keeping track of garden tools…

This is today….one week later.

So, the beautiful weather today called me to get out and do some work. I had to go into the garage and find a few of my gardening tools.  I found three garden clippers hither and yon among the rubble of the garage. I fixed my favorite one with the best grip and most cutting power and promptly lost it somewhere in the garden. Every year I say I’m going to paint my garden tools a bright color, but I never do. This year I remembered I had some yellow duct tape in the junk drawer. My clippers went from this:

The little orange dots of plastic provided by the company just don't cut it when it comes to finding them.

As simple as that. Why didn’t I do this to my tools years ago? I will be putting this tape on my shovel, spade, trowel, etc… I still can’t find clipper number 3 – my favorite – I know it is in the garden – I just had it…Stay tuned, this marking of the tools has inspired me to possibly clean out the garage and organize my garden tools. Now that would be something!
