Cultivator Find

hellbender(6)December 31, 2012

For the last few weeks I have been keeping my eyes open for a worm-friendly cultivator to use when digging around in the bin. I wasn't having much luck . . . . . until today that is!

While wandering around over at the local Tractor Supply this morning, I stumbled across my very own SpongeBob SquarePants solid plastic cultivator. I thought that this quality, worm disturbing instrument might set me back a few bucks. It turns out that the public had obviously overlooked this gem for some period of time. As a result the item had been marked down to . . . . . . get this, 49 cents.

Now normally I absolutely hate to shop, but this made my day. It was the last one, too. Not to worry, if you would like your very own, they are available at Amazon (see link). It will cost you more than 49 cents though. I like the product description:

"This SpongeBob SquarePants kids cultivator makes digging around the garden easy and fun for kids. It's a great way for a child to help mom get rid of weeds or find a few worms."

Here is a link that might be useful: SpongeBob Cultivator

Good find

I have one like that - well my daughter has one. 99 cents for a trowel and cultivator set in pink with Dora the Explora on it.

They have held up for a year of toddler use both in the garden helping daddy and sand box. And when she isn't looking I grab and use the cultivator in containers and my raised bed as my steel one is in the basement.

LOL! I love it! My eight grandkids have each had a similar set in one form or another, and do you think I could find one in this house today? Not on your life!! But come spring, I will be on the lookout for one for Grammy!

Yep, I have one with straight pronges, not sure what it's called and it works great, no injury to worms. Also a kid's "tool". Anything safe for kids is safe for worms, no sharp & pointy edges etc. and I bought it at the end of summer sale for less than $1

Found one! Grabbed the trowel since it was hanging right next to it. 88 cents each!

That looks like the perfect tool. I use a similar one. I also use a barbecue skewer for those single lost worms. If the worms are tiny simply touch the wand to them and they for some reason stick to it for easy and gentle replacement to where they belong.

When you use the Sponge Bob tool, does the theme music start playing from the handle? hahahaha You must be the envy of all the gardeners in your neighborhood.
