I have never been much of a gardener, but I love to live vicariously ;). Let's see your gardening endeavors big or small, and of course the knives you use therein, whether made by me, or someone else. Thanks!
 
some of my pineapples from this summers crop and Buck 110 I had with me to cut them loose. all my David Mary knives other than a couple daggers are big knives.....but I'll use one to chop down my sugar cane end of next month or so or before end of the year and a freeze comes along....if one does.....hopefully not...I dislike the cold.

Good thing it's Magnacut, otherwise way too obsolete for work like that!
 
Let me get this straight Mr. Monkey: You can grow pineapples, and yet it gets "cold" there. Something seems off. ;)
sometimes in the winter we get a overnight freeze meaning what it is literally 32f / 0c. cane has to be cut down and harvested before a freeze. sometimes cane is ready end of October sometimes December. it rarely gets that cold even for a night here, but has happened before. although doesn't matter as this morning I saw those pesky raccoons pulled all my stalks down. so most of the crop is ruined for this year. it's gonna be "seed" now for next year's crop. I'll bury it this weekend for next year.


below 28f /-2.2c can kill pineapple plants. we had it that cold last winter for a night and killed my green pepper plants and a handful of my pineapple plants. unlike up there with entire winters far below those numbers we get a night or two sometimes that cold over a winter.
 
Pesky trash panda bandits!
they are the worst. bears stink too, as they eat every pineapple in one sitting. least they aren't wasteful. they eat everything but the top and skin. raccoons take a few bites and leave it.

bears....
