it's not really a recent purchase, but I do love my garden claw I received as a gift several years ago. I use it all the time to break up the ground in smaller areas I'm working in. Sometimes the ground gets compacted after alot of watering and, even though I amend my soil with compost each season, we have alot of red clay in our soils, so I really depend on my garden claw to break things up through the summer.

I'm trying to grow vertically this year, I found two metal arbors at the end of the season at Lowe's last year for 20 bucks each. I've attached some wire hardware cloth to them (I think that's what it's called) for the cukes and squash to grab hold to as they grow upwards.

I love growing cucumber vertically! Have an old metal arbor too, and they thrive so much better than growing on the ground. I think the air circulation is better, plus the slugs can't get into the fruit 'cause it's not laying on the ground.

PVC piping and netting for a garden trellis. Shannon, I'm jealous. I've been looking for some cheap arbors to use too!

What is the most recent thing you've purchased to help make it easier to manage your garden? (or just any purchase really)

Curious to see what people are excited about
Last year I planted my tomatoes in rows (160 ft )& watered with 2 in. lay flat hose as the main line & ran 3/4 in drip tape off the main line . With the growth of the tomatoes & the drip tape it was diffcult to feritilze the plants.This year. I bought liquid feritilzer in 5 gallon buckets, a siphion valve,couple little ball valves,3ft tubing. Now when watering ,I can feritilze the plants. How Sweet It Is.

I finally found rail road ties for my organic garden beds I construct for a descent price! I was very happy haha. It reduced my cost immensely and rail road ties are the best for my mushroom compost organic gardens. I do everything by hand beside tilling every now and then. Gardening keeps me healthy all these gadgets and tools eliminate the effort necessary to use your body to stay healthy in my opinion. Natural way is the best way every time. ;)
