Re: garden tools
gardenchat@hort.net

Well it sounds like I should buy one.  It looked interesting.
 
I am also shortish (5'3") and the older I get, I keep thinking I need to find
tools that don't keep me down on the ground and have leverage. (save the knees
and back) 
 
Thanks!

The short-handled Cobrahead is absolutely my go-too tool. I have both the
short and the long, but my aim isn't very good with the long handle, and I'm
short and weak. My landscape helper likes them both.

The short handled is perfect to use while sitting on my rolling garden seat or
on the ground. It can get underneath and around all of my good plants without
harming them, and it will grub out Bermudagrass without leaving the roots (and
if you know Bermudagrass, you know how one speck of root will resprout.)

I use the short handled for all of my containers, too. I love how it grubs out
weeds and the old plants. I also use it for making furrows in my raised beds
for planting seeds, after I've used it to weed the bed.

Too bad you're not going to be at the Southeastern Flower Show next week. I'm
speaking there, and I'm giving one away. I love the thing!
