    • Kare, the circle hoe is an awesome weed getter! It is also very useful for mixing in compost and other soil amendments. I hope you enjoy it!

  2. This is a trulu unique collection of gardening tools that perhaps while not essential would come in handy on a day to day basis. I especially like the SpeedMaster Garden Seeder as i have difficulty sowing small seeds like lettuce without wasting them. The circle hoe looks like a good companion for the standard scuffle hoe for gettin right next to small plants.
