Every hoe has to have an official portrait and this is it for the new stirrup hoe, purchased earlier this spring. What do you think? I thought the blue of the Blue Dogbane (Amsonia tabernaemontana) would complement the lovely blue of the hoe itself which is why I chose this spot and this time to take the picture.
This is a fine hoe and quickly becoming one of my favorites. I've used it several times in the raised bed vegetable garden beds to clear out weeds and find it is easy to use, light enough that you don't feel like you are dragging a club through the ground, but substantial enough to whack off those weeds!
I've also added this portrait to the whole hoe collection post.
I'm always available to give advice on hoes, which ones to use for which occasions, which hoes to avoid, where to buy a good hoe, just ask! The only thing I don't know about hoes is how to stop acquiring them!
Does anyone else have more than one hoe? Is anyone gardening without a hoe?
