    Basic Gardening Tools

    Thursday, August 4th, 2011

    Basic Gardening Tools – as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. First of all you need to have a good spade, a spade rather than a shovel, or a shovel that is not a scoop shovel, the kind you can dig with. You need to have a real garden rake, you ought to have a bamboo rake, and a hoe. You know, a spade and a hoe, and some muscles, to get out there. Pruning clippers, or some kind of clippers. Usually people need two, little ones for snipping off dead-heads and big clippers and pruners for the branches that you need to cut back. That is a whole other story, but its fun to cut things back, takes out all your frustration. You know, you can say, “Take that! And that!” What else would I have to have? I would like to have a pair of gloves, and then for weeds I kind of like those things that are called Hula Hoops that have a long handle because I do not get down on my knees as easy as I used to, and they have this blade so you can get the weeds right under the ground. If you have those, and a watering can, and a good hose, and a spray, and maybe one of those extenders you put on a hose that you can water baskets, that is pretty good. Those are really the essentials. Oh, a digging trowel! So you can get down and plant plants because most of the time you are on your knees when you are planting plants. So a real good trowel is nice and strong.

      How to build a Garden Tool Storage Bin for under $20 Holds 18 tools! Save Money and Room!

      Saturday, July 2nd, 2011

      Dad came up with a pretty good idea for storing all the garden tools he had floating around in his garage. First he purchased a used (empty) 50 gallon barrel from a local food processor for around . the barrel’s top is permanently sealed, but it has two large threaded holes in it. He cleaned out the residue from the original contents (molassas) using hot water and some dish soap. Using a 2 1/8″ hole saw, he drilled 14 more holes into the top (in addition to the two holes already in it) giving the top of the barrel a total of 16 useable holes. By pouring four gallons of 1.5″- round river rock through the 18 holes he gives the barrel enough weight and stability so that it won’t tip over with the tools in it, but still be easy to move around the garage. The only thing I didn’t show in the video was that I would drill some small drainage holes in the bottom of the barrel if I was going to store it outside. (This is why you want to use round river rock as it will not compact (like crushed rock) and will allow water drainage through the rock.) As long as the holes in the bottom of the barrel are smaller than the round rock it would allow water to drain, but not let the rocks fall out the bottom. Dad’s storing his tools inside so no need to drill drainage holes.
