Multi-garden tool

This tool has two functions for gardening purposes - a spade to dig soil or fertilizer, and a liquid holding tank to water the plant. It is important to have fresh foods in your diet and it can be difficult for astronauts to have this on the space station. This tool allows to care for small edible plants (such as cherry tomatoes, berries, carrots, ect) while taking up a small amount of room. The water holding tank has a sliding door that can open and close for when you want or do want to water the plants, and a hole on the top with a plug to refill it. This tool can be printed in any plastic or metal material. This tool could be printed larger and be used to garden bigger areas that would be necessary for longer intervals, such as exploration of the moon, in a green house.
