One never knows, they may find a stainless steel trowel like made probably 30 years ago guaranteed to last a few generations. I use both because they have slightly different profiles.DirtMechanic mentioned good choices and often for best quality and cost, if available a local flea market etc. where old tools of good quality are sometimes found. The gardening Trowel would be a first if I were choosing. Fiskars has a set of 3 and Fiskars may be a little more expensive but better quality that the one i pitched in the recycle bin a few days ago that bent easily like a soup can lid.
I'll never find one better that the one pictured that belonged to the wife's grandmother. I did make a new Bodark wood handle for it a few years ago, so if left outdoors again by mistake the handle will still be good for another hundred years.
I need a garden knife. Or maybe a long sharpened trowel. Any recommendations?
My wife's Father passed that along in his Estate. I understand why he liked it. I have found one similiar, but the widthe of tine seems greater and the length more apt to pull you under a bush. Dewit makes other interesting tools as well.Hey Dirt Mechanic.
Some back scratcher that
Ultisol. Udult series. We had 6 inches of rain last week in one day. I think we manage 60+ inches annually. It leaches every liming agent out and leaves an acid clay capable of aluminum solvent toxicity. Red like the girl of your dreams from the iron ore.what type of clay are you using for your garden?
