Whats your favourite gardening tool?

Steemians what is your favourite gardening tool and why?

Today while transplanting some dahlias seedlings into their own pots, a neighbour came over to nosey about what I was doing, he asked me a question that I pose to you today, what is your favourite gardening tool and why?

I looked at him and thought a little bit, was it my rake? my spade? my tiller? and then it dawned on me, it was a spoon.

Even though a spoon isn't really a gardening tool it serves me so much use and comes in real handy for little jobs that a trowel can't do.

For example, do you want to dig your plant up when digging a weed? No, but a spoon can get down and around a weed pretty easy and takes it out with out damaging the plant itself.

I use it for other things as well, I make holes in soil to replant seedlings, it makes lifting the seedlings so much easier than pulling at the leafs.
