Use the right tool for the job" was the motto of my father, the woodworking hobbyist. My mother, however, used the same cast-iron skillet to cook just about every meal. I am their daughter, the gardener, and I don't think you can have too many garden tools, even if you find yourself using your garden knife for just about every job. Since this is the time of year to take stock of garden hardware and draw up a spring shopping list, let me offer my list of essential garden tools. Every gardener has a trowel and a pair of pruners.

Carrie Engel has been seeing green for more than 30 years. No, she's not jealous or rich, but Engel is the envy of Baltimore's gardening cognoscenti. Known as Valley View Farms' "gardening guru," Engel, 51, started at the Cockeysville enterprise in 1972. Since then, she's appeared frequently on TV and often gives lectures at garden forums. Engel, who grew up in northern Baltimore County and lives in Phoenix, says gardening can be easy, but it takes time. "There's a learning curve," she says.

A late Easter and a cold March brought a parade of chilly sales reports from the nation's major retailers yesterday, but analysts discounted last month's figures as potentially misleading.Clothing store chains posted especially discouraging numbers. The Gap, a perennial high-flier, skidded to a 3 percent sales decline at stores that were also open a year ago. By that same closely watched indicator -- comparable-store sales -- The Limited was down 8 percent and Joppa-based Merry-Go-Round was down 12 percent.

Although 19th-century garden writer Charles Dudley Warner insisted that the only tool a gardener really needs is a strong back with a hinge in it, most of us are grateful for implements. But few gardeners agree on what constitutes an adequate armory of garden tools. Twentieth-century garden writer Ruth Stout, famous for her no-till garden, believed in only three tools - a trowel, a spade and a fork. (I can't imagine what she did for pruning.) At the other end of the spectrum is Martha Stewart, who confesses to being something of a tool junkie.

All I want for Christmas this year is a good set of garden tools. . . and the good sense to use them properly.My old hand tools are a wreck. Both the hoe and the lawn rake are broken, their handles cracked in half. You'd have thought I had used them as baseball bats. Well, I didn't. However, the garden shovel has stroked a few hits during pick-up games in the back yard. Maybe that's why there is a 2-inch gash in the blade.I ruined the hoe a week ago, while chopping at a stump the size of Kuwait.

Keeping the garden tools in a corner of the garage is all very well, but most gardeners really want something more -- a handsome shed where the wheelbarrow, flower pots, garden gloves and the inevitable collections of old seed packets and plant labels have a place of their own. A resourceful gardener can manage quite a lot without the luxury of a shed, but when the gardener's ambitions and equipment begin to crowd the family car out of the garage, a...

Bathroom upscale Buyers of new homes have become obsessed with bathrooms -- the bigger and more extravagant, the better. When the National Association of Home Builders recently surveyed 440 buyers on their bathroom preferences, 58 percent wanted two baths. Then there's the interest in amenities: Fifty-seven percent wanted color toilets, sinks and tubs, not white. More than 80 percent demanded a separate shower enclosure instead of just a nozzle in the bathtub. Sixty-six percent wanted a dressup/makeup area.

Gardening, the passion to dig, plant and hope, is in full flower. As soon as the tulips bloom and the first spinach pokes up from the ground, a crop of gardening books arrives. As two brothers who like to get down in dirt -- one to grow something beautiful, the other to grow something to eat -- we teamed up on the current yield of gardening books. Every gardener's library should include a book outlining the basics -- everything from sensible garden planning and layout, topsoil preparation, through plant selection and garden maintenance.

EVERY COMMUNITY is more than the sum of its residents. The places we inhabit include the memories of those who have gone before us, as well as the legacies we bequeath.Savage is particularly rich in memories -- and in dedicated folk whose efforts nurture the community, sometimes for decades.Our communities are built on the achievements of those who leave to go out into the world, and on the dedication of those who remain.Some examples from Savage:The Savage Community Association is sponsoring a community cleanup of Savage Cemetery.
