Once when I was a little girl, I was swinging on my back yard swing set. My mother asked me to show her how far I could jump. Normally, I wasn't allowed to jump, even though it was my favorite thing to do. She feared that I may fly at a high speed and fall and hurt myself. I loved the brief sensation of flight, and the feeling that I was invincible. Sometimes I tied a little baby blanket around my neck like a cape and see if I could watch it trail behind me.
I swung as high and hard as I could until I was perpendicular to the top bar and parallel to the ground. I launched and soared. She ran towards me, I sailed past her, arms outstretched. Instead of catching me, like I thought she would, she swung a hoe as hard as she could and cut a copperhead snake in two, and chopped off its head.
It had been curled just below my swing. She saw it react every time I wooshed by, getting more and more agitated. Just as I jumped, it was about to strike, she said. My daredevil spirit and a hoe saved my life.
Permaculture practices teach minimal digging and minimal disturbance of the soil. Interplanting and succession planting are vital as it keeps the weeds down and offers symbiotic relationships for plants.
Sometimes, though, you just need to dig. Whether it's getting rid of a pesky weed, harvesting, or tilling rows, there is a tool for every job.
Made of solid steel with replaceable wood handles. Kept oiled and sharpened, these tools can be passed on through the years.
Measuring 14" long by 3" wide. Available as a hoe, hoe with a pick, hoe with a rake, or just a rake. You will find a combination that works for you.
Of course, like our other hand tools, they can serve double duty if there is a Viking raid, zombie apocalypse, or poisonous snakes.
