Can you identify this True Temper SW5 garden tool?

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Several members of my family have used these garden tools for twenty or more years. We always called in a "scruffle hoe" but I’ve since learned that’s incorrect. This particular hoe is shaped similar to a hockey stick, with the blade attaching to the handle at one end. The handle of the hoe owned by my mother reads "True Temper SW5."

I recently emailed True Temper after not finding the tool on their website. I took several pictures as they weren’t able to find any info using "SW5" and still they didn’t know. The rep that tried to help even checked with some of the so-called old-times of the company and they didn’t recognize it.

I’ve also brought printouts of the pictures I took of my mom’s True Temper to various hardware stores & gardening centers. No luck.

Last, I’ve used Yahoo to search several times for more info, using any of the info I have. Nothing.

The only place I’ve found it for sale is on eBay, and it’s a used item with no further description. You can see the listing & picture if you check the auction link below.

Please respond if you know the name of this hoe or where I could find that info. You’ll solve a family mystery! =)

    Survival Gardening in Containers

    Friday, March 30th, 2012

    Finally got some Tomatoes, Bell Peppers, Basil and Oregano in the ground – err – buckets! Not soon enough for the latest increase in food prices though. Container gardening with “earth box” type planters made from buckets and Rubbermaid containers. It is a self watering bucket garden! Next is brussel sprouts, head lettuce, and a Jalapeno plant.

        What should I do about flirty neighbor that flashes me while gardening?

        Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

        She always shows up in my yard while I am gardening. She wears loose tops and bends over in front of me so that I can see her breasts. She never is wearing a bra either.

        It is having an effect on me now, how do I handle?
        We are both married and I know flirting. She is flirting with me, she fancies me. My wife even picked up on this. My problem is she is very attractive and my temptation is growing. An attractive woman really knows how to work it and make perfectly good husband have nasty thoughts.

              Thanks to everyone who responded to my first question regarding putting too much organic fertilizer on my vegetable garden before the seeds germinated.
              Now what can I do? Are the seeds/soil beyond repair? Thanks.
