The Time Has Come
Many items we buy are geared distinctly towards either the male or the female shopper; today’s marketing world has jumped all over the “gender specific” product. And why not? The differences between the two genders are quite obvious and numerous. That’s why what’s good for the goose is not necessarily good for the gander. This applies to gardening and farm tools as well. Most of us tend to think of gardening tools as one size accommodates all, but there are those who have decided the concept of one size fits all when it comes to yard or farm tools is outdated, and downright dangerous. Let’s face it, a five foot five woman will not and cannot wield a shovel, spade, or hoe in the same manner as a six foot two man. And what woman intent on getting the job done wants to wait for someone else to come and help them, resulting in lost work time, not to mention just being downright irksome. The possibility of there being tools out there made with the woman gardener or farmer in mind is pure genius. The fact that women will no longer have to make do with whatever tools are available is an idea whose time has come. I just wish I’d thought of it!
