Well Used

I don't have a lot of fancy gardening tools - mostly just the basics reside in my shed. I did however purchase the garden Bandit from Lee Valley a few years ago. It does a pretty good job with minimal effort of weeding in small areas. I would have to say that besides my trowel, shovel and pruner, the most used tools in my shed are...

The $2 pet food scoop and my trusted bucket.

The scoop holds about 3 or 4 times what my trowel holds and it was perfect for scooping the soil into my containers. The bucket gets used on an almost daily basis. If it isn't being used to hual something (soil, compost, plants to be moved) it is with me in the garden as I weed or sitting upside down to protect tender plants from frost.
