Unfortunately, those ten fingers will only get you so far and then you need to bring in the big tools. Every Gardener that I know also has his or her own set of favorite tools that help in their task of creating beauty in the space they call home. If you are new to gardening, acquiring your first tools might just be a little easier if you do some reading right here!
Charlino knows how to get rid of weeds in a non-harmful to the environment way! Check out her posting right here: The Best Chemical Free Method Of Ridding Your Yard Of Weeds
If that's not a good enough start there is always some tools from other countries that might help you with any gardening chores you might have. Check out Nejiri Kama, Japanese Sickle or the other favorite Japanese gardening tool, one that I happen to really love and use daily: Sharp Tools are Required, Sometimes
Among other things to do in the garden with your tools is to set up your space. This of all things can be the most daunting. It's not enough to have some dirt, you do need to keep in mind what your plants are going to need as far as sunlight, watering and other needs to get you growing in the right direction. Having a plan sometimes helps! Books are a great resource and can help to kindle the desire to help nature be everything it can be. Planning and executing can be the most interesting part of your new garden and can be done in the months that aren't quite spring or summer yet! Or if you have tried and weren't quite happy with the results, then some books can help you make it better next year. Gardeners are the eternal optimists. Whatever didn't work this year, will work next year for sure........
