Garden Hand Tools
There are some things that Power Tools have not mastered yet. Well, not at sensible prices anyway.
After all, what can be healthier than spending five hours digging a Vegetable Plot on a crispy February day !!!
Garden Tools are often in the 'you get what you pay for bracket', but there are many bargains at the lower end of the market - and looking around, this is certainly so.
What I've found is that it pays to have almost every tool there is. There's nothing worse than 'making do' with the wrong garden tool. It's best to take the plunge and buy the lot. You may only use some of the items once a year, but when you do, it's worth it !
When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. ~Author Unknown
