All Garden Hoes Are Not Created Equal

Gardens are important, and one of your most important garden tools is a hoe. If you garden a lot, odds are you will use your hoe a lot. Buffalo Bird Woman used one made out of an animal’s shoulder blade for much of her youth (she was 19 before her family even had a metal cooking pot). Unfortunately, many of the ones you find at the garden center of places like Home Depot or the hardware store are cheaply made in places like China. You need to be selective to finding a fairly good one.
