Little Garden Helper

In California everyday is perfect for gardening! And, in my world there is a bonus… a grandboy who is my favorite little garden helper. He may be small but he is enthusiastic, energetic and has all the right tools for the job!

(Actually this pouch is Bob Blomberg’s Gardener’s Hollow Leg, Jr.)
