You don’t need many tools to start gardening. You can dig holes with a stick or a sharp rock. You can start seeds in tin cans. You can use all sorts of stuff to carry water. You really only need dirt, sun, and seeds. So don’t run out and buy a bunch of stuff!
But when you realize you’ve got the gardening bug bad, there’s a few tools that really help. First off, you need some rubber boots. Otherwise, you’re going to track mud everywhere. That’s going to make your significant other very annoyed!
I bought these boots in 2006. They’ve held up very well over the last seven years. They’re waterproof, thick enough to block thorns, easy to hose off, and the sole is thick enough that I can push on a shovel with them.
They’re made here in Illinois, USA, by Boss Manufacturing Company. They’ve been around since 1893!
You can order them on Amazon. You can’t order them direct from the company.
Note: I will get some commission if you order the boots from the link below, so if you hate me, you should not click on that link.
