Gardening Game Changer

This is not a sponsored post, I'm just sharing my experience with this wonderful tool.

Have you ever heard of a Hori Hori (dig dig) gardening tool?  It is also known as a soil knife or weeding knife.  I found out about it from one of my favorite homesteading youtube channels that I follow.  I had never heard of or seen one before.  It looked intriguing and very useful.  I decided I needed such a tool.  Oh my goodness, best tool ever!!!  If you have never tried one I HIGHLY recommend it.  It has a sharp knife edge on one side and a serrated knife edge on the other.  The blade is slightly concave and there are inch markings on the blade for planting guides.

If you like to garden or pot plants, then this is the tool for you.  It digs, cuts, and weeds with ease.  It makes light work out of any garden task.  I have bent and destroyed so many of my trowels over the years trying to dig up deep, stubborn rooted weeds. It was so easy to harvest the asparagus pictured above.  I just used the serrated knife edge to cut the stalk at the base as is preferred when harvesting asparagus.  Mine also came with a wonderful leather sheath to store it in (the blade is quite sharp).

We get these horrible, invasive, vine type plants in the garden that are near impossible to keep up with.  The hori hori takes care of every one of them as they start to come up.   I couldn't be happier with how easy it is to use and how much work I can get done with it.  Its narrow blade allows me to easily slip in between plants to eradicate any unwanted weeds within my raised beds.  It has proved invaluable to me in the short time that I have used it and I couldn't be happier. I highly suggest you check it out.  There are many different types from Amazon at varying prices.  I scored mine for about $20 and it came with a sharpening stone and nice leather sheath with a snap band to keep the knife from falling out.  I am so glad I tried it.  Gardening and weeding will never be the same!  :)  Try it, you'll like it!
