Tools For the beginner Gardner

Congratulations on deciding to plant a garden.   The rewards are great both mentally and physically, as well as getting to eat some really tasty food that you grew in your own garden..

To begin, start small and simple.   A small plot doesn’t require a great amount of tools.  If you are going to invest in tools though I do suggest that you buy high quality as opposed to cheaper, as you will be replacing them often if they are low quality.   A high quality tool should last years and should be a compliment to your efforts not a hinderance.
