Fiskars Softouch Garden Tool Set makes weeding a pleasure
One of my favorite times in the garden is in the evening. It's so peaceful and relaxing. I wear long sleeves and pants to keep off the mosquitos and sit down by a vegetable row and start pulling the weeds. These tools are a godsend. The are light aluminum and have a soft padded handle that's easy to hold. I work my way down the row, scooting along. Obviously this is not for clean new pants, but some of the old comfort lightweight cotton, frayed and damaged and unruinable.
If I'm very ambitious and the plants need it, I put a trowel full of compost or fertilizer around the root and dig it in. I have to say, it's a great feeling to finish a row. Maybe the Evening Grosbeak is singing and the air is soft and cool. I stand up and look at the row with pleasure. All right, so I know that in a few days, the next cycle of weeds will start and in a couple of weeks I'll have it all to do over--that is, unless I put a heavy mulch around the plants. But it's hard to beat for beauty, a nicely weeded cultivated row of lettuce or beans. Maybe it's all those micro organisms in the soil that are supposed to make you happy. Maybe it's a job that's well done. It makes me feel great!
Everyone knows Fiskars makes great tools and these are no exception and there is a lifetime warranty so how can you go wrong.
