New "Favorite" Tool
The Garden Guy, on HGTV recommended this, so when I saw one at Lowes, I bought one for myself for Mother's Day.
Here's the 'scoop' (so to speak):
Ames True Temper Planter's Buddy 7-in-1 Hand Tool
Item #: 248710
Model: 2500800 $13.78
Multi-purpose stainless steel garden tool features 7 tools in 1!
Trowel, weeder, sod cutter, twine/bag cutter, measurer, digger, and tamper handle
Use tamper feature to tamp in fertilizer spikes, stakes, and small nails.
Serrated edge on tool blade easily cuts through bags of mulch an soil.
Since I'm currently weeding I love the little weeder tip, the serrated edge does cut through plastic bags, and it is solid steel. I like the twine cutter, and the measuring marks (because I'm trying to plant things the right spacing:)
The handle is comfort coated, and this blue is easy to spot.
