What is this garden tool called?

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

The tool has a long shaft and then on the end has 6 angled star shaped spikes that sort of cross over each other. when one is spun the others spin in an interlocking chain reaction. It appears to be a tool that is pushed along dirt in order to make holes or for some other use.

If you could tell me what this tool is called that would be great.

    get rid of out of control weeds in garden?

    Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

    I’ll admit I’ve been neglecting my garden. It is full of weeds! I don’t have any kind of garden tools to clean it up with. what do I need to do? The lawn grass is even moving in. There is a mulch paper that’s oven the entire garden for years now, with holes where things were planted. I don’t know what to do. All I can think is I can’t afford a tiller or anything.

      How to build a Garden Tool Storage Bin for under $20 Holds 18 tools! Save Money and Room!

      Saturday, July 2nd, 2011

      Dad came up with a pretty good idea for storing all the garden tools he had floating around in his garage. First he purchased a used (empty) 50 gallon barrel from a local food processor for around . the barrel’s top is permanently sealed, but it has two large threaded holes in it. He cleaned out the residue from the original contents (molassas) using hot water and some dish soap. Using a 2 1/8″ hole saw, he drilled 14 more holes into the top (in addition to the two holes already in it) giving the top of the barrel a total of 16 useable holes. By pouring four gallons of 1.5″- round river rock through the 18 holes he gives the barrel enough weight and stability so that it won’t tip over with the tools in it, but still be easy to move around the garage. The only thing I didn’t show in the video was that I would drill some small drainage holes in the bottom of the barrel if I was going to store it outside. (This is why you want to use round river rock as it will not compact (like crushed rock) and will allow water drainage through the rock.) As long as the holes in the bottom of the barrel are smaller than the round rock it would allow water to drain, but not let the rocks fall out the bottom. Dad’s storing his tools inside so no need to drill drainage holes.

        My dog is pissing me off. Help!!!?

        Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

        I have a year old lab/greyhound mix that has an enormously large backyard, lots of soft and hard chew toys and 3 friends to play with (one dog, two cats). He won’t stop chewing my blankets, garden decor and other things. He also won’t stop digging. And it’s not that it’s hot or that there are animals we need to worry about. It is totally pissing me off and I have no idea how to stop it. I have tried putting him on a lead and he just digs holes around him bc he’s pissed off. We have tried giving him the run of the backyard with a warm place to go to sleep in. We have tried many things. HELP!!!
        I have tried keeping him in the house but then he chews on blankets, gets in the trash.

        I would love to take him to obedience training except that he know how to sit, walk on a leash, and all the fun tricks they learn at training.

        What kind of punishment is acceptable?
        I appreciate the feedback. To those whom think I shouldn’t own dogs…. I absolutely love my dogs however I feel a little overwhelmed and that is why I have asked for suggestions. Nicole I don’t appreciate your comments as I love my dog and I spend as much time with him as I do my toddler. He is very well taken care of it is just when I am at work that these things happen. Then I come home having to clean up after his mess or repair blankets because he got bored during the day.

        How do I keep cats out of my vegetable gardens?

        Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

        I have several small vegetable gardens around the yard. There are a number of cats in the neighborhood who dig holes and do their business. I am looking for an easy and cheap way to keep the cats out of the garden, without using chemicals or injuring the cats. What works for this?

        How can I attach an item to my home without drilling holes in the siding?

        Saturday, June 26th, 2010

        I bought one of those metal wall plaques that are meant to be hung outdoors for garden decor. I live in a place where we are not allowed to drill holes in the siding, but I see people everywhere with them attached to their homes. I asked around at a home improvement store, but they weren’t very helpful. I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to hang it. I can’t use the command hooks with the sticky backing, because it would be too heavy. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
