Gardening...not just for little old ladies anymore

Few weeks ago I took a *long* day trip to Lancaster County and on the way there stumbled upon the Rodale Institute Farm -- those are the folks who publish Organic Gardening magazine.

In their bookshop, I couldn't resist this sucker -- a Hori Hori.

They're used for especially for perennials so you can break up or cut through root wads to separate and plant them.

Either that or its an excuse to own a bayonet but call it something else.

Mine is stainless steel, didn't realize till I got home the same company makes them in carbon steel which I might've preferred since I'm getting pretty decent with sharpening stuff and its far easier to hone a sharp edge on regular steel then stainless.
