Long in the Tooth?
Not if it's an olde garden tool!
Two of the most useful gardening tools I have:
. . . but, they're almost wore out!
I'm not sure why the photo makes the 4-prong cultivator tines look so much longer than the rake's. They are between 1/2" and 1" longer and so short that I feel like I'm using a toy out there in the garden.
The rake has lost 3/4" of it's teeth if the information for a comparable model is a good indication. It's mostly for leveling and doesn't get much work "digging." It still has another year or so left to it. I've got another garden rake but it's got a wider track and does too much bouncing over my rough & rocky ground.
I'm rather fond of that simple 14-toothed rake. That fondness will last until my work with it becomes ineffective. Then, like the cultivator, I'll find another to do the job. After all, it is the work that I enjoy and the tools that are helpful in doing it.
What can you do with what you've got and,
- What can't you do without?
