I bought one of those tractor type stools to use and it is too tall for me when I sit. I have to lean too far over to reach the ground. I wish I could return it. I bought it from Gardener's Supply. I recommend trying them out before buying--but there was no place to try one. I don't think I have seen any kind of traveling stool for sell in my town. Too bad.
I am wanting to get one of those hoes. I sit or scoot on the ground and do a lot of weeding. It's the getting up and down that does me in. I have no muscle power! So, scooting along the ground works for me. I also put my tools in a bucket and push it around. Also, I use another bucket to throw my weeds in.
I have looked at the child's tools and wondered if they would actually work. Also, I have looked at those rakes and wondered about them. So, thanks for the informative article.

Thanks Birder, I'm sorry the stool isn't working, maybe you could list it for sale in your local paper to get some of your money back? It is hard to get exactly what you need without trying them, I spent so much time in the store before I found what I wanted.
