rusty garden finds
I have been finding all sorts of things buried in my garden. In addition to happiness and potatoes, these are photos of long ago tools. Some are abandoned tools from fairly recent gardeners, I think others are old items from the farm here 100 years ago. The space our Victory Garden plots are on was used for livestock and crops prior to 1950.
I have hung these items on my fence or displayed them on rocks. Kind of like garden art or old family photos. My favorite is the enormous and very rusted horse shoe. Maybe worn by an old draft horse? I feel its bringing my garden good luck this year!
