Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

Three Important Gardening Tools

I have three very important gardening tools that you will not find in the gardening section of any store. They are:

  • digital camera - A digital camera not only gives a pictorial as to how my gardens are doing but helps serve as an important identifier for both flora and fauna. 
  • cell phone/wireless phone - A garden can be a very dangerous place in many perspectives even though you don't think of it as such.  You could be bit by something you react adversely to or have a slip and fall or anything in between.  It is very important to have some type of phone with you that in the event you need help you can get it.
  • water bottle - I always have a filled water bottle with me in the garden.  The heat of the day can be quite dehydrating and despite intending on only being in the garden for a few minutes it can easily stretch out to an hour or more.  During the gardening season dehydration can be a problem so to combat this always take a filled water bottle with you and make sure to take the time to keep your body properly hydrated.
Happy Gardening!
