Sharpening:  An Underrated Skill

Maintaining a sharp garden tool is one of the easiest ways to improve your overall experience in the garden.

Whether you're weeding or planting trees, a sharp tool will help you work faster and more easily.

In our latest blog post and video, I'll walk you step by step through the process of sharpening a garden tool with a simple file.

Not only will you enjoy your garden work more, but you'll be well on your way to sharpening more difficult tools like pruners, sickles and axes.

Give it go, here.

Pre-Order a Magna Grecia Hoe and Save 15%


The Italian-made Magna Grecia hoe is quite unlike any other tool on the market.  

The 10" tines are fairly long and slender, like a digging fork, but instead of using your legs to drive the tines into the ground, you swing the Magna Grecia.

The weight of the head plus this swinging motion allows this tool to loosen soil more deeply and easily than any tool I've ever used.  

( a broadfork is similar in purpose, but it struggles in hard, un-cultivated ground)

The Magna Grecia is a great tool for creating new garden beds and for deeply aerating existing beds prior to planting.

As shown in the video, it can also be used for cultivating between rows of veggies during the growing season.

To save 15% ($9.30), use the coupon code magna g at checkout.  

I'll be placing an order for these on Wednesday the 25, so the discount will expire then.

On the Horizon


Pruning season is underway, how are your pruners cutting?

If they're in need of a tune-up, look out for our next article on pruner sharpening and maintenance.
