I am a grower of vegetables and flowers. I have a tool that is wonderful: It is the circle hoe.

Instead of the flat surface of a regular hoe, it has a 3-inch circle head on a long handle. The tool is perfect for getting the weeds between plants. Its small head allows it to fit into tight spaces, and the long handle eliminates the need to work on my hands and knees.
