What's your favorite gardening tool? I never get started without my favorite pair of gardening gloves and my trusty trowel. I also take a nice big water bottle out to the garden with me. :)

I don't really have a favorite tool. I rarely wear gloves. I love the feel of the dirt in my fingers. I use a hoe in the big garden and a small shovel in my flower beds.

Can I say tiller? We put our rows far enough apart to run a tiller through the center. It makes weeding the garden so much easier. We don't wear gloves either.

I've tried using a tiller before, but it's so big and unwieldly that I struggle to handle it. I usually ask my husband to do it! I don't mind weeding so much, so it is not a huge deal if the tilling isn't fully effective.

I don't have a favourite tool to tell the truth. I have a hoe, and I used it when I helped my grandparents. When I was a child I could help them, I wasn't busy at all, but now growed up, I'm too busy every day and I lost the possibility to actively follow my hobby. Anyway, I must say that I still go there to see what's going on our plot of land, and, even though I don't have a lot of time avaiable, I try to follow them and help when I can do it. I nearly forgot, my grampa doesn't love gloves, like me, instead of my gramma, who loves wearing them.

I don't necessarily have a favorite, but I do have one that makes life easier which is my huge garden bucket. It's on wheels and it holds a ton of stuff, so there are fewer trips to the shed and the bin.

@vincenzosassone, it's nice that you help your grandparents when you can. I enjoyed reading about some of your memories with them. My grandparents have both passed away, but I also grew up helping them in the garden. Those were very special times that I will always hold dear.

If we're counting large pieces of equipment, too, then I'd go with my tractor. If you only mean small garden items then I'd go with my sturdy hand truck because it's so versatile.
