Essential Gardening Tools You Need To Own

We all want to help our gardens look their very best all year round. To do this, we need the right equipment to help us. But if you’re new to the world of gardening, knowing which tools to buy can be overwhelming. While you could buy every item available in your local gardening store, this can be a huge waste of money. You may buy items that you don’t require or ones that you don’t know how to use correctly. So rather than buying everything, why not buy top quality essentials instead. Here are three gardening tools that every gardener should have to use in their outdoor space.
Lawn Mower
Whether your lawn is small or covers acres, a lawn mower is a crucial gardening tool all homeowners need. Having a well-manicured lawn can make your garden look more spacious and appealing to spend time in. It also shows that you take pride in your garden and keep it week maintained. You can find a lawn mower for sale online, in newspapers and garden centres. But just remember that the types of lawn mower vary significantly from manual to ride on. Think about the size of your lawn and seek advice from the experts at your garden centre. You should also consider the additional cost of tuning and maintaining your lawn mower as some will require more than others.
Garden Spade
Gardens spades are another tool that all gardeners need to own due to their multiple uses. They can be used to dig holes and loosen the soil to plant flowers and trees in your garden. Another use is to remove weeds and dead plants from your flower beds. Spades are also useful for removing snow from your driveways and paths during the winter. You can find them at most garden centres in an array of different sizes. Test out a few options before you buy to make sure the height is perfect for you to use. If it’s too short, it may cause you back pain as you garden. The handle should also be comfortable to use and ideally have a hand grip included.
Hose
To keep your garden looking as fresh and beautiful as possible, a garden hose is crucial. This tool makes it easier to keep your garden hydrated and also encourages your plant life to flourish. Hose pipes are also ideal for watering hanging baskets which may be difficult to reach with ease. You can find hose pipes for sale online and again in garden centres. Before buying, consider what the most appropriate length would be to reach your entire garden. If buying a second-hand hose, always check for holes and test before you buy. You might also want to see if there are any attachments which can be added to the hose to enhance its capabilities further.

When buying these items, always buy the best quality you can comfortably afford. These items will last longer, break less and help you garden better. Once you’ve mastered using these tools, you can then slowly start adding to your collection one piece at a time.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
