Garden Tool Set, $24 VintageABCs
No garden is complete without plants, tools and cute decorations. First up, we have some antique gardening tools for the taking. Buying vintage means you are using something discarded yet fully functional, doing your part to upcycle and not buy mass produced crap items that will further clog the landfills. Let's face it, if the tools above are still around this means they don't make them like that anymore! These tools above will last you plenty of seasons to come!

Next up, we have a Garden Growdome. This is a must for the eco conscious gardener. The bottom line is before Monsanto, and use of growth chemicals and harmful sprays, people grew their crops and harvested them in a healthy and timely manner. Now, with population spurts and climate issues, Monsanto backed by large box retailers are under fire for teaming up to mass produce items in a hurry. This includes spraying them with harmful chemicals, using fertilizers that are harmful, or contain growth hormones. Long term issues include health problems.
Now you can be corn fed with natural untainted crop by using this udpated Tiberian Grow Dome system . The mere theory dates back to 14AD --- and has been updated to today's gardeners. This way, you can make a climate to safely grow your plants to the max without the use of pesky hormones and unfriendly chemicals. The guide is available for less than the cost of a gallon of weed killer, which you don't need anyhow. Get on the bandwagon here http://jessegilbert.com/growdome
