Gloves are a must! Having eye protection when cutting branches is a good idea also

One of my favorites is the cobra head weeder. A single-tine hand cultivator that works wonders in between my rows and my plants. I find that it's my favorite because it works, works well, works fast and is simple. Can't beat that.

Thanks for the awesome information MJ. Will try this as my garden isn't doing the greatest. Trying to work on the clay in the soil.

We used a kids wading pool 12 across, drilled 1" holes near the lower edges evry 10 " to drain. Used 3 types of bagged soil(12 bags in all), manure, top soil and potting soil. Fill the pool 3/4 full, within inches of the top. We put a 2' high plastic coated chicken wire with 2' stakes , tucking the wire on the inside of the pool with the stack hooks to the inside, and the stakes pounded w/ a mall into the land on the outside of the pool. This keeps rabbits, neighborhood cats out. In the frost warning days, a sheet can be laid across & over the wire. We left it up all winter, the wire stayed up with high snow drifts about and during thaw, the snow/water drained out the bottom. We had hiuge tomaote plants in 3 wks, were showing tomatoes, so manure was a good thing. Also had good redd tomatoes long beofre anyone else had any. Cost? 7/pool(reg $15) $2-4 soil per bag, $15 for wire/stakes about 75 total but reaped a good early harvest! Bonus, have the pool, soil and wire ready for again this year 2011!
