Japanese hand hoe–it’s a legit tool that makes weeding super easy. I’m so enthralled by it that I took video with my phone and created a YouTube channel so you can see how it works. The Japanese hand hoe cuts under the soil and cuts the roots of the weeds. As a follow-up to prevent them from coming back you just need to cover up the soil with black weed paper, mulch, or straw.
I didn’t know this tool even existed until my landlord, who is an organic farmer, saw me weeding by hand one day and took pity on me. He brought me his and loaned it to me. I’m looking at some on Amazon when I decided to get around to ordering my own. They’re not expensive; the ones I’ve looked at are anywhere from $10-$25.
What do you think? Have you ever used one of these? If so, why didn’t you tell me about it?!
