My thoughtful husband gave me a hori hori for our anniversary! What? You've never heard of a hori hori? Well, let me fill you in. By the end of this post, you'll be wondering why your significant other has never thought to give you such an amazing gift!
More expensive versions are sold on Burpee's website, but my hubby was able to find one made by Fiskars at Wal-mart for much cheaper. Apparently, they don't know what it's called, though, so it's on the shelf as a "Multi-Purpose Planting Tool." According to the tag, it's features include . . .
-- a trowel blade for planting
-- a serrated edge for digging and cutting
-- a forked tip for weeding
--a large, soft grip for added comfort and control
I'm sold! I haven't had opportunity to use it yet, as I just unwrapped it, but I am already having visions of myself wielding it wildly in the garden, ripping open mulch bags, and unleashing my fury on those weeds that dare creep into my garden beds!
