Born of pure Yankee ingenuity, Pike's Original Maine Garden Hod reflects the very best of Maine's long tradition of functional art, craftsmanship and utility. Designed as a harvest basket but used for everything from a picnic basket to a knitting basket to a place to store kindling at the fireplace.
Hods were originally used by both the French and the British settlers for everything from carrying bricks and mortar to measuring and washing fish. For hundred of years, Maine's clam diggers have used hods to hold and rinse their catch.
"Maine Garden Hods", styled after the traditional clam hod, are built to last from quality hard and soft woods and durable food-grade vinyl-covered mesh.
Designed for harvesting and washing plants, fruits, and vegetables, users have discovered that the Hod lends itself to hundreds of other uses -inside and house- any time of the year. You'll find the Hod is one garden tool that's useful indoors our out..any time of the year!
The Original Hod measures 19-1/4":x11"Wx7-14"H and has a capacity of approximately two pecks (16 quarts).
Pike's L'il Maine Garden Hod measures 16"L x 9"W x 5-1/4"H and has a capacity of approximately one peck (8 quarts).
