Re: CAPE COD WEEDER


OHMIGOSH!!  What a wonderful gadget it is!  Very labor saving and a Godsend if you have clay soil.
It's got a longish wooden handle - 9" or 10" w/ a steel head, shaped
like a long leaf set roughly perpendicular to the handle and sharpened
on the interior edge. They only make them right-handed, but even though
I'm a lefty, this is NOT a problem.

With a nearly effortless flick of the wrist, you can chop out nearly any
weed just as nice as you please. The really deep rooted stuff like
dandelions require different treatment, but for for most weeds - woo hoo
on the Cape Cod weeder. A certain mutual friend is getting one for her
b-day and I'm sure she will do the woo hoo dance. A comfortable tool to
use and not heavy at all.

I believe either Lee Valley and/or A.M. Leonard has them.  GOOD STUFF!!

Pam
