If you want your garden to serve a purpose, these are some of the easiest foods you can grow.
Build a gardener's portfolio
Keep tabs on your garden. Create a scrapbook using an inexpensive photo album and add your plant tags and sticks to it each season. Then, make it as detailed as you’d like by adding information as to where the plants were purchased and where the plant was located in your garden. Add your own artistic flair with sketches of your garden or photographs.
Create a no-stick shovel
Spray your favourite garden shovel with a silicone or Teflon lubricant to make shovelling a breeze. A good coating of this spray will make any type of soil slip right off the shovel without a mess.
