I agree with Tink's assessment and her rating. I've been feeling a touch of deja vu ever since this set arrived, so I checked out Meg's AGT listing on the HOME PAGE. Sure enough, in 2002 there was a Gardening Accessories set sold that I know I bought, although the pieces have been scattered far and wide by now.
The 2002 set had more tools and a real green house with real clay pots and real seeds you could grow things with. Same shovel/trowel but also a nice little gardening fork. Instead of the plastic watering can there was a bigger aluminum one, which I actually used to water my seedlings that year. Also a little plastic spray mister, which was cute but not effective.
Since Tink has done such a good job photographing all the components, I won't repeat them. I also object to the smooth plastic surfaces so I may decoupage them at some point. I think the tote is the best part of this set because it can be used to tote real little clay pots. It would be nice if the garden journal included some gardening tips on top of the pages, but I'm sure I can provide that.
My biggest wish for this set would be garden gloves! Too finicky to make for myself and they would look so cute, hanging out of the tote. But since I won this set as a prize and it's my very first thing I ever won, I will be grateful and enjoy all the pieces when the girls come outside to work in the garden with me!
