    Yes, Cayuga--I liked what I saw on LIcenter's posting. Weeds are such pests. How are you coming along with yours?

    @Sjoerd I am "fighting the good fight". I'd like to buy an action hoe (stirrup hoe) or a schoffel like you have. I will as soon as I get a chance.

    Well, Cayu--I know that the tool sort that I use are also for sale in the us. Sneeboer is the brand.
    I do hope that you can find a good tool to work with, for it makes work less irritating. chuckle.
    Here is a New England example: https://www.whiteflowerfarm.com/49807-product.html
    If you guys ever come this way, the Bride and I will take you to the "factory" where all tools (for local or world-wide sales) are made...by hand. It is only a few minute drive from our home.
    Til then have a look at this posting: https://www.gardenstew.com/threads/its-not-just-a-tool-its-an-heirloom.28416/#post-258034
    Good luck, meid.

    Voles, mice,shrews etc etc....If only we could train a few weasels
    Long-tailed weasels eat mice, rats, voles, squirrels, chipmunks, shrews, moles and rabbits. Less common foods include birds, bird eggs, snakes, frogs and insects. Least weasels specialize in taking small prey such as mice and voles. They do most of their hunting in tunnels made by these rodents.

    I have a friend who has a resident fox in her yard. He is taking care of the moles voles & rabbit's in her place.
