24 Days of Giveaways - Day 4 Tools of the Trade

Our giveaway today is simple. Tools.  

Natalie Goldberg has spent a lifetime inspiring people to write.  She has written over fifteen books and millions of copies in many languages. Natalie spends most of her time doing workshops now, especially on Writing as Zen.  One of her most profound statements is, “choose your tools carefully, but not so carefully that you get uptight or spend more time at the stationery store than at your writing table”.  It hit me as I often search for the “perfect” tools for my garden.  

The truth is, tools should be good quality. They should be a part of your life for a long time.  But your search shouldn't be a quest on it’s own.  

Here at Stems Flower Farm we use good tools but very few of them are over the top expensive.  Unless you count the hundreds or maybe thousands of dollars we spent using tools that couldn’t measure up to some of our tasks.  It is funny that the questions of basic tools don't come up as often as they should.  

Day 4 of our 24 Days of Giveaways is a bundle of everyday tools that make gardening easier.  And you won’t have to think about where to shop or where to find these items.  Soon you’ll be able to buy them right in our shop.

We are giving away the best parts of our “uniform” here at Stems.  The tools that we wear and use everyday.  From top to bottom, we have a sun hat, a tool belt, snips, plant tags and a marker.  

The most used tool in the kit is our ARS SnipsThese 300L-BP Needle Nose snips are a perfect example of finding a tool that fits my hands, is durable and simply does the job it was designed to do.  And the most underrated tool has to be our Pentel N50 Pen.  We have used many markers that claim to be permanent on our plant tags, but the Pentel has proven it’s worth a hundred fold when you can still read it at the end of the season.  

The rest of the kit is a light weight UV resistant sun hat that washes up and still looks good season after season.  These work hats sure can save you on a hot day. And last but not least, our everyday tool belt.  Everyone in the field wears this tool belt to carry hand tools and elastics and, well you name it.  And so you have a head start on something to tend, we have included a $50 Stems Gift Card.  Now you’re all set to grow and outfitted to be a successful Cut Flower Grower.

For a chance to win leave a comment below.  In your message, share what garden tool makes your life easier, or what garden tool you’ve had your eye on but just haven’t found the right one yet, favorite tool tip or something you would recommend to all our readers, anything really, as long as it puts a smile on everybody’s face.  EASY.  This giveaway is open to anyone with a Canadian shipping address. This Giveaway is open until Sunday night December 5th at Midnight PT.
