Two products that will make your life easier next spring

Yesterday Karina (Canadian Gardening magazine's associate editor) and I met with Brent McHenry from Fiskars. Brent made his annual visit to our office to show us what's new for 2010. We started with the crafty stuff — border/corner punches, scissors for crafting and dressmaking, and more. Craft stores make me SO happy, so having a private preview was pretty cool. Then we moved on to what's new in gardening. The highlights for me were the following two products: the Momentum reel mower and the Sit & Store

What's interesting about this mower compared to other reel mowers is that the blade will last way longer -- there is no metal on metal contact, so it could be upwards of seven years before you have to sharpen it. This lightweight little number can also work as an edger and is apparently 30 per cent easier to push! The Momentum will be exclusive to Canadian Tire, will retail for about $199 to $220 and will be available in January.

I carry a little basket around the yard with my tools, generally a glass of water and sometimes the phone. But what excites me about this cart is I can attach my bucket to the back and lug around bags of dirt and other heavy stuff. The top comes off, too, so you can protect your knees while you dig in the dirt!
