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! =)

    My mom planted a vegetable garden over our recently buried dead cat. Is it gross to eat the vegatables?

    Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

    Our cat of twenty years died 7 months ago. We buried her approx 2 feet under ground in a cardboard shoe box. My mother planted a vegetable garden (squash, eggplant etc.) 14" away from the grave site. My mom has been serving my brother and I the vegetables every night. Is it gross or wrong to eat them?

        Advice on good tools for the garden?

        Monday, September 5th, 2011

        My grandpa had tools that really lasted through the years – some he only ever had to buy once. I’ve already bought several tools that I’ve already replaced because they were made badly.
        Anyone know of some good quality tools that are hard wearing and comfortable to use? I’m looking for small hand tools like a handfork and a shovel and a fork.

        I DON"T JUST WANT A LINK! I want names and YOUR personal experience with the tools and what you like and don’t like.

        Vote cheaters shouldn’t bother answering (you know who you are!) – I will be voting for the best answer.

          How do you keep fingernails clean when gardening?

          Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

          Does anyone have any "Martha" tips on how to keep nails from looking like an auto mechanics when you are an avid gardener? Martha Stewart suggested to put rubber gloves under gardening gloves, but they make your hands sweat badly! Or, how best to clean "gardener’s hands?" Thanks!

            My first vegetable Garden?? Advice?

            Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

            I live in an area where it rains from September to April nearly every year, and then the temperatures rise and it is relatively dry from May to August. I know next to nothing about gardening, but would like to give it a try to save myself some money on groceries since I just bought my own house.

            I want to start a smaller sized garden that is easy to maintain, but that I can grow my favorite vegetables. I would like to grow squash, cucumbers, carrots, leaf lettuce, sweet bell peppers and radishes.

            So my questions are:
            1) How large should I make the garden?
            2) What are the best vegetables to plant with the weather conditions that I generally have?
            3) What are the easiest "beginner" vegetables?
            4) How much space should I be allowing for each different plant?

              Christians is your religion needlessly bloody?

              Friday, March 18th, 2011

              (background info; if needed)

              1: "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying …"
              10: "And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; I will even set my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people."

              11: "For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul."

              "I understand the Christian Faith to be based on blood:

              The blood of Abel crying out from the ground and being heard by God is the first mention of blood in the Bible.
              The first shedding of blood may have been by God when God provided skin coverings for Adam and Eve before their expulsion from the Garden.
              God "passes over" the homes which have blood sprinkled on their doorposts and lintels in Egypt before the Exodus.
              God teaches Moses the shedding, spilling, and sprinkling of blood as ritual sacrifices necessary for the atonement of sins and the purification of the priests and accessories for the tabernacle.
              For thousands of years the Old Testament portion of the Bible chronicles countless blood sacrifices before and upon the altar of God in both the tabernacle and the Temple at Jerusalem.
              And the prophets, speaking for God, gave many dire warnings of serious repercussions because of the shedding of innocent blood."

              A person can experience a relatively minor injury, and suffer the fatal process of exsanguination — the complete loss of blood. Their body may appear almost entirely intact and yet the person would lie dead in a pool of their own blood. Ancient peoples would have noted this. Blood would come to be viewed as the life force, or as a fluid that contains the life force. Early religions, including Judaism, assigned magical power to animal and human blood."

              ***************
              – In the Christian myth. Jesus’ perfect blood sacrifice (acting as the lamb of God) provided a total remission of sins toward all who accepted him. This is because "the wage of sin is death" and "life is in the blood". However the preceding statement is now known to be fallacious. There is plenty of Biological life in the world; much of it without blood. Life isn’t technically in the blood. It’s just a liquid mixture of various cells, nutrients, waste, and gasses (transported within the cells)

              Your gods passion for blood is almost reminiscent of the Aztec gods passion for blood for the very same reason. People believed that blood was magical and could be used for atonement and as a way to with the favor of the god/s because they didn’t understand it.

              Your biblical god appears to the outside analyzer as primitive and quite literally bloodthirsty.

              *So my question is: What separates your God and his preference of atonement from all the other Gods and their rules of atonement (some of which are peaceful not bloodthirsty).
              Myth was not meant to be read as "mythology".

              def.
              "In the study of folklore, a myth is a sacred narrative explaining how the world and humankind came to be in their present form.[4][5][6] Many scholars in other fields use the term "myth" in somewhat different ways.[6][7][8] In a very broad sense, the word can refer to any traditional story.[9]"

                My mother says my gown I picked out is too formal for the setting?

                Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

                We are planning on an outdoor wedding at a lodge in Gatlinburg, TN. It has a large garden and terrace, a large front porch, and the interior of the lodge is tastefully decorated (not that log cabin decor look–think wingback chairs and hardwood floors).
                The dress I found yesterday was absolutely gorgeous. I can’t find a pic online, otherwise I would post it. But it’s made of an ivory satin with a layer of champane lace and a short train. It is very comfortable and romantic looking. It doesn’t "poof" at all.
                What do you think? Would it be too formal?
                Gillan–your dress is somewhat similar to mine! A few differences–mine does not have the sash, the lace is slightly more predominant, and the top of the dress has a few pieces of lace that sit higher than the satin….otherwise it’s very very similar!
                Also this is my First and only wedding.

                  I would like to grow a vegetable garden, but…?

                  Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

                  …I have a poison ivy problem. I live in the Mid-Atlantic.
                  First, how do I get rid of the poison ivy problem without harming the surrounding vegetation and soil?
                  Second, does the land need time in between the eradication of the poison ivy and propogation?
                  Third, should I use any composting material after eliminating the poison ivy or will this be irrelevant with regards to the poison ivy? And…
                  Fourth, how concerned should I be about this poison ivy problem in light of beginning a vegetable garden? After all, the vegetables are going to eventually go into the stomachs of my family and I am concerned for any poison ivy "residuals".

                  Please, only serious responses will be welcomed and professionals/educators are a bonus.

                  Thank you.

                    Please read my question!!!>>>???

                    Monday, January 17th, 2011

                    When you feel like watching a movie or going shopping at some luxury stores, what’s the deciding factor? Is it the decor, what 96 luxury shops are offered, how well our dancing fountains performed, the world’s largest IMAX screen at over 170′ or IMAX 3D, the four giant 100′ screens, the 18 other Lucasfilm THX certified screens, the 1200 inhabitant jungle atrium, the walk through aquarium, or the two five star restaurants?

                    Hi, this is a preliminary poll we’re taking for a possible super-mall in the west Texas region. It would have all these amenities, and a staff of over 300 employees. Not to mention, the world’s first "green" parking complex (green because of the amount of emissions offset by the garden on the roof).
