            Can someone identify this garden tool?

            Sunday, December 25th, 2011

            It is kind of like a humansize set of pliers that i believe you break up soil with, It is very large and hard to handle. Part of it is made of wood and the rest is made of some kind of metal-the part you pick up stuff or break up stuff with.

                  I have a vegetable garden next to the property fence. The rain water from slightly higher neighbor’s property?

                  Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

                  I have a vegetable garden next to the property fence. The rain water from slightly higher neighbor’s property comes to my vegetable garden. This water is contaminated with stools and urine of cat and dog. What is the potential risk of any disease transmission from a disease carrying/infected cat/dog’ fecal matter or urine entering the soil and the roots of vegetable grown in such environment?

                    Easy way to get soil ready for a vegetable garden?

                    Sunday, September 4th, 2011

                    I’ll have a 12′ x 4.5′ garden and need to get the soil ready. Our soil is largely clay. I’ve got compost, sand. mulch, and can get manure (though I think the compost is sufficient). I’ve got a good shovel and a Garden Claw and metal rake and other tools.

                    Now I need suggestions on how to get the soil ready for the seeds I plan to plant in the next few days. Any procedures or links to easier ways to get the soil ready would be appreciated.

                    Thanks.
