antique-garden-tools

With rooftop gardens popping up in Brooklyn and big-name chefs touting their locally grown produce, gardening is enjoying a bit of a guy-friendly rebirth of sorts.  Despite being dominated by the likes of Martha Stewart and fuchsia-shaded kneeling pads for the last few decades, gardening is – and always was – a manly undertaking.  Want proof?  Check out these Antique English D-Handle Garden Forks and Spades.  These are tools of men who dripped dehydrated sweat while harvesting crops for their family’s dinner tables.  Each fork and spade offered here is unique and selected for their individual quality and appeal though all do feature the D-handle pictured.  Even if you aren’t taking them out to some beds you have in the backyard they work well at counteracting the take-out menus you have hanging on the fridge.
