OXO Spring Gardening.

The weather has turned insanely springy and just lovely.  Temperatures are supposed to be in the high 70’s and low 80’s.  Perfection. We’ve been working on the garden little by little. Thus far chives, kale, spinach, cilantro, mint, radishes, strawberries, garlic, Swiss Chard carrots, basil, Rosemary and peas are planted and in full gear.  This week we plan on hitting up the nursery for flowers and the rest of our veggies and herbs to plant.

OXO sent me some awesome tools to try out in the garden.  We are very fortunate to be able to compost all of our refuse from our kitchen.  Veggies/fruit as well as other items like coffee grounds, tea that we don’t throw out.  Our soil is rich and packed with nutrients from all of the scraps.  The tools helped to churn up the soil and get it ready for more plants and seedlings.   I want to share some fun pics from today’s gardening.

The measurements on this trowel were so helpful as each plant has to be buried at certain depths.

Constructed of high-quality stainless steel for durability and strength.
Comfortable handle is non-slip, even when hands are wet.
Cushioned handle absorbs pressure while digging.
Large measurement markings at one-inch and one-centimeter intervals are easy to read.
Trowel head is large for efficient digging and serrated edges make it easy to open bags and cut roots.IMG_4753
The serrated edge was great at cutting through the soil.

Do you plant a garden?  Is it small or large?  Nothing quite like harvesting fresh food from your own garden.  If you don’t, think about even a patio garden with some of your favorite herbs or smoothie ingredients.  Happy Spring!
