    When I got home, there was a hoe waiting on my door step

    When I got home, there was a hoe waiting on my door step-img_8117r.jpg

    Like Goldie Locks, she went in all the beds.

    She was well built, felt great in my hands and made short work of the weeds.

    The problem is that she was addicting and now I want get another hoe!

    @Redneck - Thanks for the great recommendation!

    I wish Prohoe also made shovels as I could use a well built shovel or two.

    I purchased one also, on redneck's recomendation. Damned thing works great! I have used several hoes in my lifetime, and discarded all if em cause they didn't work well. This one is great. I do no-till gardening and this tool busted up my compacted dirt like a hot knife in butter. Buy one. Hell, buy two!

    I know! The exact same thing has happened to me in the past..... three or four times!
    I will choose to enjoy the journey that God has prepared for me. Hidden Content

    Unless someone tries these, you just don't get it. Like you, I was amazed at how easy it busts up the soil plus how easy it removes the grass/weeds. Used one yesterday clearing along the garden fence and planting pole beans. I too believe in not tilling a garden once it is properly constructed and nothing I've tried is better than this hoe to keep it going.

    I've got 4. Three of these and a smaller triangle garden hoe to get in tight.

    Hoe's have a real bad habit of turning up on the doorstep at the most inopportune moments.

    They are great labor savers, aren't they. I consider them a valuable part of my prepping as even though I have a small tractor, I prep for a possibility of a crisis without such conveniences... EMP. But even if the tractors were working, during a collapse of society one would have to become self sufficient quickly. Right now, like probably most gardeners here, I just grow food to supplement what we purchase. I am prepared to ramp up production quickly. With these, and maybe a sharpshooter, a few folks could construct lots of garden space in little time.

    I can feel the blisters and my back hurts thinking about it, . . .

    BUT, . . . can you show a couple of standup pics showing the head, . . . how big it is, . . . etc??

    AND, . . . where do I order one if I can get my coupon for more Aleve??

    May God bless,

    SierraGhost, . . . seriously, thank you for jogging my memory buttons.

    I had not thought of old Uncle John Gilliam, from Carter County, Ky. for some time.

    He lived with my Uncle Ruben and Aunt Inez, . . .

    During the summer time, after breakfast, he would head out to one of the fields of corn, tobacco, or the garden.

    His walking stick was his hoe, in his bibbed overalls, long sleeve flannel shirt (365 days per year), work shoes, and an old hat that years before had been his "Sunday go to meeting hat".

    When he passed through a part of the field or garden, . . . you can rest assured there were no weeds left, . . . tractor cultivators took care of the biggest part of the weeds, but Uncle John cleaned up all the stragglers.

    Again, thanks for the memory.

    May God bless,
    Dwight

    just like shovels and some of the other gardening tools - there's a correct one for every different job ... the heavy whacker for taking down a milkweed isn't worth a damn for nimble hoeing down the carrot row ....
