just a tad scratchier (some might say unbearably scratchy) and only available
in a limited choice of colors... like beige.
Must be purchased by the bale
and applied with a pitchfork...
but the new sheets on these beds couldn't be finer!
I suppose it depends on ones priorities [grin].
If I can't outrun the weeds, maybe I can outsmart them this season...free up some precious time
for other garden endeavors...
like sitting in the shade under the umbrella.
See that orange-handled tool poking up along the side there?
That is the one garden tool I couldn't possibly live without. Called "hori hori" from some vendors.
Might wanna check 'em out.
Thanks to A. M. Leonard for the picture. That's where I purchased mine although they are available
from several sources. Leonard calls theirs a "Deluxe Stainless Steel Soil Knife" and that it is.
Basically, it's a re-design (more ergonomic) of an older style with a clunky wooden handle. Not only
were those models heavier & not easy to grasp once muddied or wet, but heaven help you
if you laid it down in the garden somewhere and forgot where it was...
the old brown handle certainly wouldn't let you know.
I haven't lost this one yet and it's been a good two years now.
The best of the weekend to everyone...hope it's brilliant wherever you are
and may all your weeds be damned.
