  • LOL Steve...I thought you said "Richard sent me this picture of a new wedding tool he picked up at a landscaper's short course this week.

    Instead it said "weeding, not wedding"...big difference.

  • Yes, I believe that would be a unique wedding tool. Maybe a wedding to which I would not want to be invited.

    With my typing ability, it could easily be wedding, so I went back to check as well.

  • I do most of my weeding with the bilateral-hand-10-finger-pick tool!

  • Steve,

    I'm ready to get my hands dirty. It won't be long before I start getting ready to plant my early vegetables, I like to push the limits with my early ones. And the vendor actually didn't call any thing, but it is similar to one of the Japanese weeders that Lee Valley Tools has.

  • I also, have a tool I bought last summer, it is called a Cobrahead weeder, for tight narrow places. Works well.

  • You can see why it got its' name from this site http://www.cobrahead.com/cobrahead_tools.cfm.

    That "bilateral-hand-10-finger-pick tool" sounds pretty complicated. Does it have a covering of human skin?

    I've heard that model has 27 working parts.

  • Yeah, Steve, actually they (2 of them) come with an overgrowth of epidermis, but 2 opposable thumbs are required or they just don't work right!
