Agriculture domestication was first started tens of thousands of years ago and surprisingly civilizations across the world began domesticating seeds around the same time. The first plants to be cultivated were grains such as barley, wheat and rice. Of course, now, there are thousands of seeds and crops produced around the world. While much of the vegetables and fruits are produced on large farms and plantations, one common feeling ingrained in people is the need to sow the land. 

There is no doubt that you have had the urge to have your own garden. From seed to stalk, there is something special about producing your own food from a small garden. Surprisingly, a small eight-foot square garden will produce enough food to feed your family. But, if you tend to be more aggressive, you can always go for something much bigger. 

But, do you know which tools you will need for the job? Can you identify those tools from an image? Well, this quiz is here to test your gardening wits. Can you identify a hoe from a loop hoe? Or, do you know the different uses of various shovels and rakes? Is a cultivator used at the beginning or the end of a growing season? 

Buckle up those overalls and see how much you really know about that garden you've been dreaming about.
