I’ve decided to host a monthly giveaway here at JPGD, and I’m very excited about my first one, the Potting Scoop by DeWit Tools (also affectionately known as the “Shawna Trowel” by friends)! My dear friend and garden buddy Shawna Coronado took a trip to the Netherlands last year and visited DeWit Tools where she forged her own garden trowel:
Check it out: it has a rounded scoop so soil won’t fall out (I hate that), a notched edge for cutting open soil bags (brilliant) and a sharpened bottom edge to cut through roots or anything else you want to cut through. DeWit Tools and Shawna generously sent me two trowels — one to try out for myself and one to give away to someone super lucky! I used this tool the very same day I got it, and I really do love it. It’s a really sturdy tool (the craftsmanship is beyond excellent) and the features are genuinely useful. And I’m a hard nut to crack with garden tools, being a landscaper and all. The Hunky Foreman/Fiance even loved it because it was hefty and felt good in his hands.
So, you know you want one of these babies, and I’m here to help. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post — the giveaway will run until Monday, February 18, 12:00 midnight CST. The next day, I’ll choose a winner randomly from the comments — but, please, please, please remember to leave your contact info when leaving your comment. I can’t tell you how many times someone won something from my blog and I couldn’t find them to tell them!
