Help Mom enjoy the best part of gardening — the harvest! — with a special harvesting basket. Sure, she'd probably say she doesn't need one because a random bucket or extra container would work because she's practical like that, but a hard-earned garden harvest deserves a pretty basket. Sturdy yet lightweight, this heirloom-quality basket features a maple handle and side rails, white pine end pieces and a metal mesh basket. The wire mesh interior makes it easy to hose off everything so dirt doesn't make it inside the house. If you really want to go above and beyond, stock the basket with garden accessories like gloves, seed packets, garden tools and more.
