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.
