Jed had bought me a garden tool insert for a 5 gallon bucket. He also had a lot of old jeans saved. I decided to make a personalized insert for our tools. It has a lot of compartments for different sized garden tools. It has been very handy this past summer.

Quite ingenious. Though I noticed that the side that says, “Mickey and Jed” is a bit more elaborate than the side that says “Jed and Mickey”. Just wondering, is that significant? ;-)

You and me , both, Bon! In fact, I have multiples of most tools, cause I’m always losing them!
That bucket looks like a fantastic idea ( and big enough, I might be able to find it!).

Thank you for your kind comments. I enjoyed making the garden bucket. There was a reason for the more elaborate side Russel, I just got tired of piecing all the jean material together and just sewed on the back pockets for the second side :)

That is great, now I know what I can do with my spare tool pouches that were meant for tools that go on a 5 gal. bucket. I like yours much better, we all have extra jeans pockets etc.
I am going to fix mine now.
Thanks

I didn’t show the inside of the bucket. It is lined with pockets also. I made them fit the various tools I wanted to carry around. I found some strap-on knee pads this spring and they fit inside and there is room for rose food or any other extra stuff I am using at the time.

I have a bucket somewhat like yours, MickeyD. Not nearly as customized though. Great idea! I am always setting down a tool in the garden and forgetting where I last put it. Maybe this would help me. :-)
