Garden Tools For TEOTWAWKI!

TEOTWAWKI (The End Of The World As We Know It) is right around the corner... do you have a good set of tools in case you need to feed yourself in a grid-down situation?

After God, Guns and Gold, you might want some of these:


I made this hand-out for the classes I taught last week.

Like it? Want more drawings? I'm itching to do some more art, even if it's just silly garden illustrations and not hard-boiled detectives in black and white...

Yes, I like it. That's a nice visual. It communicates the message very well.

If you are itching to do more art, then just do it! Art does not need any more excuse than that.

Funnily enough, just today I got my Kusatori Ichiban weeder (looks wicked), Nejiri Scraper, Kusakichi saw tooth sickle, and a serrated edged Hori Hori which is MAGNIFICENT! How have I lived without them???!!! Especially the Hori Hori digger! And, they can double as self defense weapons!

Thanks. I'm decent at drawing, but I really want to paint like this guy:

Eventually I realized there was no way I had the talent to do classical figure work... so I moved on to writing, since I had a much higher base skill level.

You're right. Maybe it's time to bust out the paint, too.

YEAH! I'm a sucker for good tools.

Actually, as part of my nursery business, I'm now retailing Clarington Forge spades and digging forks. Everyone that sees them freaks out over the quality. They're the last British forge making garden tools. Expensive, but they last a lifetime.

I love things like that. I should probably post on them and let people know what I have. Time... time... time...
