Wow, a family of Mattocks.
That's like the Mercedez Benz of tools there.
Is the ground that hard?and no doubt you sport a fine pair of workboots.
Yeah. Obviously your ground is harder than ours.
Are you sure you are not working on a chain gang =opI am amazed at what you have done with your garden planting in what must be very hard and/or rocky soil. Bravo, Kathleen!Maybe add some dolomite to this toolkit? I have some hardpan along my driveway (along which I planted my tomatoes this year) and adding dolomite there seemed to make a difference.
My one size fits all tools are in a flowered hammer, no joke. You're obviously a tougher woman than I...
That is just what I use around here with all of the rock, plus a 'post hole digger'!What a cute family of mattocks, especially the babies! :-)xoxoxo ♡
I have about ten times that many garden tools, not that I use them all. I worked for the phone company for many years and our work was always along the roadways. Any curve in a road near a new sub division would have tools around it that had slid off trailers and out of the back of pick up trucks. I have around twenty shovels, sharp shooters, round points and a whole lot of square end shovels. They use those in concrete work. It has kept me from ever buying any garden tools except my Estwing pick. You would love it, just the right size, and well made in America.
My readers are all geniuses. Can't wait to see what you have to say.
