    In case a disaster strikes in, which tools do you use to grow your plants? Correct me if i'm wrong, but I'm sure there wouldn't be that many available, and it would probably be hard to get any new ones.Do you know any home-made versions of tools for farming?

    It probably be a multi usage shovel. Now a days they have multiple functions. The only problem with them is the fact that there are so many on the market that deciding on one is almost impossible. I think if we search harder we can find one with a juicer attachment or one that can walk the dog for you and send emails.

    It would be good to have a walk-behind plow. A shovel. A pitchfork might be good for aeration. A wheel barrow. We would be well served to own a rock shovel, I want one now. A hoe.

    It wouldn't be that hard to make some garden tools yourself. All you'll need are tools for digging, clearing land and and maybe weeding. These can be easy to make either from metal or wood but as there'll be a lot of scrap metal post-event even if you can't buy tools you can use the available metal to make your own.

    For me a sickle could be useful. As well as a broad machete and of course a shovel. Also a bucket to collect compost and pour it across the crop. Don't forget to have with you a pair of gardening gloves because handling these tools and exerting strength with bare hands will leave you painful ampoules and cuts.

    As long as you get a piece of metal sheet around, then you can make any kind of useful tool. You will need to first sharpen it at the edge so that you can use it for cutting. If the metal piece is heavy then you can make another tool for digging. You can use a rock to sharpen your tools.

    Amazon seems to have a lot of variety. And if you are Prime user then you can get a lot of discount on garden tools. Before fall, there seems to be going to have a discounted. For container gardening you may not need anything additional. Anything within household is more than enough for that. Don't spend more than 100$ for this. There are plenty of online shops that can give you tools on cheaper cost.
