      How can I overcome my fear of gardening?

      Friday, August 26th, 2011

      I tried to get into the hobby of gardening recently. I loved it until one day in my garden after removing weeds I saw the soil move by itself! I’m very superstitious and I fear that my house has being built on an ancient burial ground. I’m very scarred to go out into the garden now and I’m afraid something terrible will happen such as zombies. It makes it hard to sleep at night. I’m being very serious, how can I overcome this?

        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.

          get rid of out of control weeds in garden?

          Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

          I’ll admit I’ve been neglecting my garden. It is full of weeds! I don’t have any kind of garden tools to clean it up with. what do I need to do? The lawn grass is even moving in. There is a mulch paper that’s oven the entire garden for years now, with holes where things were planted. I don’t know what to do. All I can think is I can’t afford a tiller or anything.

              2. Garden scraper/straight hoe (break up grass clumps)
              3. Spading fork (loosen deep soil)
              4. Hand Cultivator (clean excess grass)
              5. Action hoe (remove uncoming weeds)
