Today we have something different with apple polls. 
We'll have one day to suggest what belongs on the list.  Then sometime Saturday morning, we'll stop accepting new suggestions and open up the voting until next Friday. 

Haven't done this before, so it will be a new experience for you and me both. 

Without further ado...



Update: Voting is now open.  Suggestions are closed.  I'll probably close the voting next Friday so we can start a new poll.  feel free to suggest ideas for future apple polls here

Pruning shears! Mine go with me everywhere!

I love and need my watering can, too.
Staff note (Nicole Alderman):

I think I added them without messing with how the poll works...

Slingshot? Makes wonders in urban areas (: Just kidding (:
I am not sure whether Hori-hori counts as a knife or deserves to have its own place.

I'd lose my permie card if I didn't mention "broadfork"

I also like my tiny snips.

Hoe, Dibble (planting stick) and rake are the ones we use the most all through the year. After those it would have to be the harvesting knife and bypass cutters.

Not sure how to vote, but mine goes towards wheelbarrows. I have three! And all were in use today as I turned the contents of my speedibin.
Close second has to be a smallish rubbermaid bin, commonly used for washing dishes. I guess i like to move things around, things like compost, leaves, wood chips, and weeds. The bin and the wheelbarrow are often a team with the bin close at hand for collecting and distributing, and the wheelbarrow to move it.
Cheers! DG

Dianne, I think you need at least one apple to vote. I just gave you one. Does the voting work for you now?

Last day to vote. Polls close tomorrow.
 
If you like strawberry rhubarb pie, try blueberry rhubarb (bluebarb) pie. And try this tiny ad:
