Thanks for the info. I see you already answered which tool to use - "a good shovel". Can you tell me if it is a really hard job?

Ok, I think I'm ready to get started on this now with all the help from my fellow Garden-webbers. Thanks!!

RE: Thanks Okanagan!

Hi Daisy --
Sorry I didn't answer earlier, haven't been around much. Got the last of my garden dug and the curcurbits and squash put in last week.

So, I just used a regular long-handled shovel with rounded end. Yes, it's hard work -- moist sod and soil is heavy. But, if it were dry, it would be almost impossible.

I guess ten years ago it would have been easier, but now I'm over 40.

How did the job go?

RE: Thanks Okanagan!

Believe it or not, I still haven't attempted it. I got sidetracked with other projects such as putting up a rose arbor, and well, life! Thanks for the input. I will get to that project soon I hope! And, by the way, I understand the over 40 thing!!! :)
