I just received my garden hod today. It is not only beautiful, but it is big! It will be just perfect for harvesting my tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash as well as the variety of fruit from my trees! I have a large sink outside for ease in washing my produce while in the garden hod. It is well made and durable. I can't wait to use it!
The Old Farmer's Almanac Garden Hod
Gather and Rinse Fruit and Vegetables Easily with The Garden Hod
Born of pure ingenuity, our Garden Hod harvest basket reflects the very best of farmers' long tradition of functional art, craftsmanship, and utility. Gardeners have discovered that the Hod lends itself to hundreds of other uses—inside and outside—any time of the year. Use the Hod for everything from a picnic basket to a knitting basket to a place to store kindling by your fireplace.
All Garden Hods are FIRE-BRANDED on one side with The Old Farmer's Almanac Sun logo!
Hods were originally used by both the French and the British colonists for everything from carrying bricks and mortar to measuring and washing fish. For over hundred years, Maine's clam diggers have used hods to hold and rinse their catch. Our Garden Hods, styled after the traditional clam hod, are built to last from quality hard and soft woods.

This is very well made and will last for decades.
