Another thread with links to The Organic Gardener's "Top Garden Tool Designs" has lots of info and suggestions re shovels, forks, claw and a spork (sort of mix between fork and spade) etc
Donna, is the following link and picture what you're talking about. Otherwise, can I have a pic, product name or something to help me find it :)
Any update from your friend on the "Ho-Mi" Asian cultivator from Greenharvest? I've often looked at it and wondered if it was any use.
Despite the Choice secateurs article, I plan to buy a couple of Felco secateurs as well - I have their smallest one and just love it. Sharpest, easiest to use and doesn't rust so far. Got a free Bahco one from our Shadehouse supplier - it rusted just sitting in the humid air. Sharp, but impossible to care for.
ps: should I post the Choice secateurs article here, or is that infringing someone's copyright?
Sorry I've been out of touch - but spending all this money is HARD work :)
