Shoes for every occasion. Water pan for the dogs. A broom. An old towel on the mat for the dogs to step on. (Helps with muddy paw prints.)
1 empty for produce hauling. The other with necessary do-dads that might be needed out and about the backyard. Scissors, red duck tape (?), paint can lid opener, ball cap, newspapers for weed suppression, clippers and work gloves.
A strawberry bucket filled with yard staples and fencing staples and a hammer.
Landscape fabric in a roll in the corner. My pepper re-starts and some petunias I picked up a Walmart that need planting.
Signs of the season, I guess. I could clean it all up but why bother? It'll all just migrate back there again anyway. It's practically a scavenger hunt. (*You know...that might be a neat idea. A blog scavenger hunt. Come up with weird and unusual items and see who's got them.)
So what's on your back stoop?
