One thing that is problematic for me is working in the garden and getting dirt deep in my nails and cuticles. No matter what gloves I use, dirt always seems to coat my hands. Since I have guests arriving at all times, this garden soil can be a challenge. So, I went looking for a tip on how to keep my fingers cleaner and came up with this article.
Not only is there a good solution to keeping fingers cleaned, there are 13 additional tips to make your gardening more enjoyable. I particularly liked the tip to create perfectly natural markers, write the names of plants (using a permanent marker) on the flat faces of stones of various sizes and place them at or near the base of your plants. With a profusion of flowers and plants that have specific seasons, this is a great way to mark where things grow.
Hopefully, you are now out in the garden and enjoying the fruits of your labor. The gardens here at the Sea Meadow Inn are coming along with tons of daffodils and hyacinth still in full blossom. The hosta shoots are all growing through the mulch and a few are even showing some early leaves. An even better sign that the growing season has begun is the budding of the traditional Cape Cod garden favorite – the hydrangeas.
