Post #500956

While browsing in the Boise Flower and Garden Show this weekend I happened upon the booth of a garden tool that I already had two of each size called the Winged Weeder (two of each size because I was tired of my DH taking my tool to use for his own uses). While looking past that booth to the next my eyes were drawn back to another tool put out by the same company. It is called the Precision weeder and it is not much more than a inch wide tool with a chunk taken out of the center of it. It is to be used for weeding in lawns or gardens and with it you can get right beside a plant to remove a weed without disturbing the plant itself. I bought one and brought it home and showed it to my DH who promptly took it out and removed bullthistle from about an acre of ground in aproximately a half hour! Today I used it to removed dandelions from the lawn and I am now convinced that we also need another one of these so that I can use it from time to time. My DH was really wanting to use it again for bullthistle removal from the pasture since he finds it nicer to use than a shovel. It is a great tool for disabled or able bodied people.
