Gardening Must-Haves

Whether you’re growing flowers or growing fruits and vegetables, we’re all excited for the weather to warm up a bit! Now that it’s springtime, you’re going to need to bring out your best gardening equipment. Before you start gardening though, here are some items that you should have ready to go this year!

  1. Mosquito Repellent Wristbands

When you’re out in the sun all day, the most irritating thing is getting bitten by mosquitoes. Although you can use bug spray to keep the mosquitoes away, you can avoid smelling like bug spray all day with the use of this repellent wristband! This product works with the use of a refillable pellet that lasts for 15 days. 

  1. Garden Kneeler and Tool Pouch

This is the perfect product to keep your knees safe and your tools on hand. It’s also adjustable so it can be used as a seat if you are trimming plants or harvesting food. 

  1. Food Compost Bin 

Compost bins are the best way to feed your garden while feeding yourself. They’re incredibly easy to use, all you have to do is put your produce waste in the bin and once it’s filled up, you can put that waste in your garden as a natural nutrient! 

  1. Hori Hori

This tool has multiple uses, making it a must-have when it comes to gardening. It can be used for weeding, digging, cultivating, sawing, and cutting! There are a variety of different Hori Hori knives that you can choose from, but no matter what you choose, you’ll be happy you got it. 

  1. Grandma’s Weeder 

Grandma’s Weeder is a tool that allows you to get weeds out without having to kneel down! It’s incredibly easy to use and gets the job done while preventing the classic back pain that comes with gardening. 

Easy Ways To Make Someone’s Day

Everyday we get to decide how we want to spend our day. Some days we wake up in a grouchy mood where we just want to get through the day and get back home. Other days we wake up in a good mood where we want to spread kindness to those around us. For those days when you’re feeling extra kind, here are some ideas on how you can make someone else’s day. 

  1. Text Someone

If someone is on your mind and you want to make their day, sending a nice text is one of the easiest things you can do. This works especially well for people you haven’t talked to in a while; letting them know that you’re thinking of them will definitely brighten their day. 

  1. Pay It Forward

When you’re stopping for breakfast or coffee in the morning, think about paying it forward by paying for the person behind you. This can set off a chain of people paying it forward as well, meaning that your decision to make one person’s day better will influence others to do the same. 

  1. Donate 

Though you might not see the effects of this action, donating something to a local thrift shop or charity will impact someone’s life who could use a good day. One way you can do this is by skipping your morning coffee and using the money saved to donate to a charity of your choice. 

  1. Flowers

If you know someone who you want to be extra kind to, the perfect gift that never disappoints are flowers. We usually give people flowers on important occasions, so giving someone flowers on a normal day makes this gesture even more special. 

  1. Smile 

One smile can make a person’s entire day. There’s a good possibility that you’ll pass by someone who isn’t having a good day. So next time you’re walking down the street, try smiling at people passing by. That action will either not affect that person’s day at all, or make that person’s entire day.
