When you are cheap...

You don't buy a trowel.
This weekend I decided that it was well worth $3.00 to have daffodils this spring and next by my porch. But it wasn't worth buying a trowel; someone I knew (namely, my brother) was sure to have one! But he didn't.

So I undertook the planing of my bulbs without any real digging tool.

This is the poor serving spoon after I was finished with it. It both washed up well and bent back into proper shape.
This is one of my little patches (with a matching one on the other side of the porch.) I am very much looking forward to spring now!!

    Trowels are cheap. I think I bought a really nice one for $6, and you can get cheap ones for $2. It's my #1 gardening tool, and so much more pleasant than a spoon. So much more.

    But see, you have a real garden and all I have is a little patch of bulbs. And, I would have had to go all the way to the other side of town to find a trowel, which would have been pointless because I had a spoon! Plus, it was resourceful of me, don't you think?

    And since the squirrel ate all your bulbs, what would have been the point of investing in a trowel anyway?
