We all could use a few tips in the garden to make it easier, here are a few.
— Add a teaspoon of sugar to a little soap to wash off stains on your hands from gardening.
— Only prune flowering trees after they have bloomed.
— When you are out in the garden and happened to get stung by a bee, apply a slice of onion to the sting, it will stop the pain.
— Paint all of your garden tool handles a bright color. If you lend them out you will be able to recognize them and get them back. 🙂
