Hopefully some people find this as handy as I did...
Pick up an old mailbox from your local recycling centre, tip shop, Craigslist, Facebook freebie group, or wherever. I got this large stainless steel one for $5 from my local tip shop.
Install it in your garden, and store some hand tools in it - a knife, garden shears, twine, scissors, hand trowel, gloves, etc. It'll be weatherproof, and you'll always have the right tools handy when you need them in the garden!
Seen this before and I really need to go ahead and do it already. Too many times I walk out the back door, look around, then 30 seconds later I'm walking back inside for the hand pruners. I'm just wondering if they will still be affected by our high humidity, specifically the sharp blades which I'd hate to see rust on.
Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you sow.
In our climate here, mailboxes have a nasty habit of becoming havens for scorpions. I've already done one hasty get-the-junk-mail-away-from-me dance this summer when a scorpion turned out to be taking his ease between the grocery-store flyers.
Not saying it's a bad idea, it's just one more thing I would have to be extremely mindful about.
