Gardeners Christmas

Please visit and like my new facebook page Georgia Home Garden.

One of the fun things about being a gardener to me is getting to buy little gadgets and gizmos to make gardening and harvesting easier.  Since I am new to the gardening game, I am slowly building my collection.  I have gotten 3 new items this week that I hope work well for me.

The following were purchased from amazon.com

Corn Brush - This is a corn/vegetable brush I bought for desilking corn cobs and cleaning things like carrots.

Corn Cob Cutter - This is a corn cob cutter that I can't wait to use in a few more weeks.  I will give a full review after using it.

Food Scale - This is a food scale to keep up with pounds harvested during the growing season.  Watching Granny's and Daphne's Monday harvest posts gave me the idea to do this.  I have built a simple spreadsheet and I hope I am disciplined enough to keep it updated.  I used the scale tonight and it works well, I like that I can automatically zero out the weight of the bowl that I am weighing stuff in.  I hope to have my harvest totals on my site soon.

I so need that scale. Really. Mine only weighs up to 4 1/2 pounds, and no fractions of ounces. I had to weigh the butternut squash on my digital bathroom scale last fall, and I left it out on the patio. It rained that night, and my $45 scale was kaput, never to weigh again.

So far I like it. The reviews on Amazon were so good I took a chance. It does grams, kilograms, ounces, and pounds with just the push of a button. I would recommend it.

I love shopping for gardening gadgets. I guess they just fuel my obsession. I love the scale. I don't weigh each harvest, but sometimes wish I did so I could compare harvests from year to year.

I REALLY want a scale. I am a math teacher and would love to see the numerical proof! LOL!

GrafixMuse, I feel the same way about gardening gadgets. I hope to be able to compare from year to year if I can be disciplined enough to keep up with it.

Cindy, it is nice when you can put tangible data behind all the hard work you put into your garden.
