KD Finds: Picks for the Gardening Cook

Planting your own garden can reward you with fresh, flavorful ingredients for unforgettable meals. Now that spring is here, we're itching to get our green thumb on with these five must-haves for the gardening cook.

1. Gathering Basket

We love this rustic wood and metal wire basket, which looks at home on a countryside farm just as much as your kitchen counter.

$40; williams-sonoma.com

2. Garden Bon Bons

Beautifully boxed like candy truffles, these seed bon bons made with clay and organic compost are the perfect surprise for a garden-loving friend. We're fans of the Italian Herb selection with basil and thyme, and the Grilling Herb Garden with oregano and cumin would be perfect for outdoor entertaining.

$16 for box of eight bon bons; moultonology.com

3. Flower Stem Garden Gloves design by Wild & Wolf

Gardening may not be glamorous, but there's no reason not to look fabulous while doing so! We love these fun canvas potting gloves in a signature Orla Kiely print.

$23; burkedecor.com

4. Herb Garden Labels by paulova

These ceramic labels are handmade in Portland, Oregon, and come in a variety of soft shades like mint, dusty rose and buttercup yellow.

$32 for four labels; etsy.com

5. Michel Bras Herb Shears

Marrying the best of French and Japanese craftsmanship, these herb shears came about from a collaboration between chef Michel Bras and Shun knives to effectively and beautifully handle tasks like cutting herbs.
