Essential gardening tools $100 budget

Bottomless_Pit | May 27, 2010 11:51 AM

If you could pick only 5 things to buy or you were on a $100 budget what would you buy for your garden. Assume a fresh start, you are moving to a new house and a family member thoughtfully gave away all your former tools.

The reason I'm asking is I've been double digging and my shovel finally gave way. I was thinking about a video I watched for double digging and the guy was using a spade not a shovel. I've been looking at the design of a spade vs a shovel and I think the spade is superior for digging.

My dad has always used a shovel for digging. I've always looked for advice from my dad, but I'm beginning to think I've learned most of what I can from my dad. Do I need to buy a shovel too? I already went out and bought a spade for approx $27.
