This pretty much completes the tight budget gardening shopping list, minus of course the plants and flowers, but wel get there. Naturally, you will want to pick a piece of land for your tight budget gardening to begin, and then youl need to turn the soil. If youe starting with a grassy area, you will need to remove the layer of grass. The tight budgeted gardening hoe actually works fairly well for this job.
Turning the soil over and over creates a better foundation for starting your tight budget garden. This is primarily what we purchased the spading fork for. As it aerates the soil, you will bring small rocks and other debris to the surface. Because you are gardening on a tight budget, you will have to perform more of the manual labor than those who purchase machinery to get their garden started. You may wish to keep this in mind when you choose the size of your garden.
Before you go out and purchase plants, check with your local organic co-op. Often they have plants the require transplanting, whether you are creating a vegetable garden or a flower garden. People whose plants have outgrown their garden are often willing to give away parts of the plant that will continue to grow for free, as they prefer not to simply throw it away.
