If you are starting to consider all of the projects waiting for you in your garden this year, you should also know that there a few things you can do to make it a bit easier on yourself. You have enough going on, so why waste time and energy when you don’t have to.
Here are a few tips that can help you shrink your workload this year:
Find a way to use a portable potting method: You can upgrade your wheelbarrow by fitting a piece of plywood to the back end with wood cleats. This will create a flat surface that is just right for your potting projects. Now, instead of hauling things back and fourth across the yard, you can wheel your soil and plants to the garden all in one easy trip.
Make an easy-to-read rain gauge: Add a few drops of food coloring to the bottom of your rain gauge. The next time it rains, the water will combine with the dye and the water level will be bright red and easy to read.
Create your own no-stick shovel: All you have to do is spray your favorite garden shovel with a silicone or Teflon lubricant. This will make your shoveling a breeze, causing any type of soil to slip right off the shovel without a mess.
