I give this gardening apron 8.5 acorns out of 10!

Our friends at Pantry Paratus carry an awesome gardening tool. I'm calling this a tool, not an accessory, because it really is that functional.

The video explains it best:



Paul thinks it's for people who are overalls deficient. I often wear skirts or things without pockets, so this is a huge help. When I wear jeans, I typically put my phone in my back pocket to keep it with me, but then I'm constantly removing it to sit down. Again, the Roo is far better.

You can purchase it here: http://pantryparatus.com/product/the-roo-gardening-apron/.

They had me with the fruit picking. And that last tomato harvest when you are desperately pulling fruit before frost. I put it on my list of things to order as funds allow.

Here's my daughter planting cucumbers with her roo apron last summer.

Having a hand free for wine is a bonus.

My wife and I both have Roo's. We love them. Makes harvesting easy. Hadn't thought about using them for planting! Thanks for the tip.
