When I’m working on one area whether it’s weeding or planting, I’m loving this garden stool. I mentioned it in my post, Tips for the Aging Gardener, because I’d seen it recommended by several gardeners in gardening forums. I will say you do need strength in your legs to get up and down on it, and you do need to have a sense of balance. The bottom is rounded and tips as you move, so you aren’t straining muscles as you reach. Plus, the seat height is adjustable. If you are looking for a way to make weeding or planting a little easier on your back and knees, be sure to check it out.
The weather has been crazy this year. We’ve had tons of rain, so plants are huge. The bad part is, we’ve had some crazy wind storms. These little gadgets are the best thing I’ve found to stake plants. I’ve staked dahlias, delphiniums, lilies, snapdragons, tomatoes, cucumbers, hollyhocks, etc. etc and they work awesome! I use them with these stakes.
With rain comes mosquitoes and gnats. I hate them, but I’m not about to let them ruin my joy of gardening! Here are the products I have in my arsenal that are working great for me. First, I slip these bracelets around each wrist and ankles, and I also wear one on my gardening hat. I also use one of these ThermaCELL Portable Mosquito Repellent units in the area I’m working in. Equipped with these two gadgets, the mosquitoes and gnats leave me alone. We also use the ThermaCELL units on our deck to keep the mosquitoes away.
Are rabbits munching on your flowers? I was hoping with our extra cold and long winter that the rabbit population would be adversely affected… it was not! If it wasn’t for this product, I would not have any lilies, liatris and many other flowers. Although I hate the smell, it’s worth it to save the flowers!
As summer is coming to an end, there are lots of deals and coupons for gardening items on Amazon. Here are some items, I have in my Amazon shopping cart, just watching for a discount or coupon.
I’m wanting to add solar lighting to a new area I’m working on, so I’m watching to see if these lights or others similar solar lights are included in deals.
This lantern style would look great too. There’s a 10% off coupon on them now.
I received these solar lights as a gift last year and I love them. They’ve been outside over a year (even through the winter) and they are still going strong.
I’m also looking for some garden statuary for my new garden area. I trying to decide on these bunnies
Or, this pair of frogs:
