• MOTHER EARTH NEWS POCKET GARDEN PLANNER

    This unique chart presents gardening events in a "time phased" format so that it is possible to see at a glance the entire planting, growing and harvesting period. It shows proper indoor and outdoor planting times relative to spring and fall frost dates for 22 common garden vegetables. Since frost dates vary from region to region, the chart will slide, making it useful in most parts of the northern Hemisphere where frost is a critical gardening factor. The front of the chart shows the spring season, and the other side acts as a guide for fall gardeners. Frost dates are included in the directions. A must for new gardeners. View the video to see how it works!

  • WEED SPINNER

    Got weeds? Let your drill do the work.

    Weed Spinner is an innovative drill-driven weed removal tool that spins out weeds at the root.

    It's fast and fun to use. There's no kneeling, bending, or getting your hands dirty!

    What is it, exactly?

    • Use Weed Spinner with your cordless electric drill (drill not included)
    • 33-inch-long forged steel shaft
    • The end that goes into your drill features three flat surfaces to stay firmly in the drill's chuck
    • Innovative design features a forged pointed tip to pierce sod, hardscape, and clay soils
    • Works on most any surface where weeds grow (lawns, gardens, sod, hardscape, loose rock, and more)
    • Easy on your back and knees
    • Eco-friendly and chemical-free
    • Aerates and tills
    • Invented and patented by Vern Ader, a retired teacher and gardener

    How does it work?

    • Insert the Weed Spinner shaft into the chuck of your drill.
    • Point the tip into the ground next to the weed's main center stalk, then pull the drill's trigger for a few seconds and push down slightly. A slight angle works best.
    • For safety and a better result, don’t start the drill until the Weed Spinner is properly placed.
    • Your Weed Spinner will usually pull the roots out along with the weed.
    • If your Weed Spinner hits a large rock or large root, it’s possible for the drill to jerk suddenly. If this is a concern, use a drill that has a second side handle for stability.
    • Weeds may become wrapped around the Weed Spinner. If they don't fall off on their own when the drill is raised up, put the drill in reverse and spin for a few seconds to unwind the weeds. With the drill off, they can be removed by hand.
    • The Weed Spinner isn’t recommended for caliche, calcrete, hardpan, or duricrust sedimentary soils. Heavy clay soils may bog the drill.

  • 5-TINE BROADFORK

    This broadfork is essentially a human-powered plow. It can be used for turning over and breaking up soil, breaking through soil thick with weeds and roots, for tearing out sizeable shrubs, and for harvesting root crops.

    Excellent for small-scale intensive agriculture and landscaping. Very heavy duty. Extremely difficult to bend or break. The fork can be stood upon in order to push the tines deep into the soil, and then the long handles and fulcrum-wedges allow the fork to be tilted back towards the user to leverage soil, rocks, and plant matter upwards in a way that is not highly damaging to the soil structure. The tool is ideal for the initial set-up of no-till garden beds, and can be used as a short-cut for the double-digging method of garden soil preparation. Removal of shrubs can be achieved in a matter of minutes by utilizing the fork from multiple angles to break taproots and lift the mass of the plant.

  • BROADFORK GARDEN TOOL

    A broadfork, also known as a grelinette, is an essential tool for small-scale farming and gardening using a no-till approach to soil preparation.

    • Light Weight - 14 lbs. - 6.4kg
    • Strength - through the crossbar tine mounting – 1045 tine steel
    • Round tines – lift soil unlike flat blade tines
    • Easier cleanup than outside mounted or flat tines
    • Optimally curved tines – penetrate tough soils
    • Ash Handles - great to work with
    • Traditional U-design - highly ergonomic

    Dimensions:
