Cedar Dibble

A dibble is an important tool in the garden. You use it from transplanting plants to planting bulbs. This hand crafted Cedar Dibble is made from cedar because of the insect repellent properties the heart wood (red) cedar has. It is smooth grained with an all natural bees wax finish. It has wood burned grooves at 1 inch intervals to make depth planting easy. The rounded handle makes a comfortable grip to work with in the garden. It measures a 1 1/2 inch handle, 9 inches long, with a 5/8 inch point.

The list price of Cedar Dibbles is $12.99, cheaper than most dibbles this size. I will custom make smaller or larger ones, email for pricing on custom made ones.

Email me at for pricing, or interested in ordering one.

Autumn Morning

Here is a poem I wrote, inspired by the early morning walk and sunrise today.

Autumn Morning
Dark the sky that waits,
For the morning sun that dawns
Cool the morning air,
Early dew upon the ground,
Fall is here at last,
Autumn leaves falling to earth,
Sweet smell of morning,
Clinging to the dampened ground,
Rays of sunlight come,
The morning’s warmth here at last.
