    We have a wire weeded in New Zealand that’s a thicker gauge and is like a hook. It’s very similar to the one you made but the thicker wire gives it more rigidity so you can slightly dig down on a stubborn weed. Google wonderweeder.co.nz. I’ve made one just using a weed mat pin.

    In my opinion you are a gardener – scientist with very innovative (and sometimes very simple) ideas. I love your approach because it seems to me that you don’t want to teach everybody but you only share your knowledge. In spite of this i learned a lot of things!…Greetings from northen Italy (Castana, Oltrepo pavese, 60 km south of Milan)

    I am very curious about the data entry software you were using. I would like to see more about it : what it is, how you use it etc. Thanks for the great vid !

  12. AZ ALLTRADE on August 21, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    Great video 👍👍

  13. Ivan Kinsman on August 21, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    I like to use a pickaxe for big rocks and a steel-forged spade for turning difficult soil.

  14. Shannan Schisler on August 21, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    just google Woodglut :))

  15. Sana Idnikla on August 21, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    Man I love your videos

  16. Bas Cost Budde on August 21, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    One tool that does a mediocre to well job on 5 types of action is still a lot more valuable than 5 highly specialized tools. You, me, we are still the ones that have to carry them 🙂

  17. Luca & Twins on August 21, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    Great video, good job and thank you!

  18. ven cent on August 21, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    im doing my garden with my shovel for 4 year now

  19. dishywilly on August 21, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    Thanks for sharing, I gotta try the little wire weeder, what a great idea!

  20. John Sheppard on August 21, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    its a rule not a ruler

  21. Donna Brooks on August 21, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    Hi. First time watching one of your videos. Excellent content. I never thought of the smart phone to take picture records of the different crops. Brilliant. Going to incorporate that into my gardening journaling. Thanks so much for the information.

  22. ROAD WARRIOR 1967 MUSTANG on August 21, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    Can i put in a 9 *12 Garden At my house

  23. Ojb 1959 on August 21, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    Paused vid at 2:00 to sharpen shovels👍🏼

  24. David Ford on August 21, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    A much better variant of the wire weeder, IMHO, is this tool:

    https://www.leevalley.com/en-ca/shop/garden/garden-care/weeders/73258-garden-bandit-hand-loop-weeder?item=XH561

    I have linked the commercial version, but mine is made from a similarly shaped wooden handle and a loop of metal strapping salvaged from a pallet. I use it constantly, have had it for 20 years or so, and am only on my 2nd piece of strapping. The handle is made from cedar, which is very soft and light, but a bit of filler epoxy has kept it going so far.

    Ima just skip this and go watch some Indian dudes build an underground pool with their hands. If they don’t need tools neither do I.

  26. Arjun Jagri on August 21, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    nice

  27. Steven Mountain on August 21, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    I love my hoe, and my pointy American spade.
    It’s the simple things in life

  28. Sebastiaan Stoffels on August 21, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    Like if you are here because you got into Gardening during Covid Lockdown and now you are trying to learn as much as possible. 🙂

  29. shinaid on August 21, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    Thank you very much for this video. I have a question: Are you using a specific app on your phone to keep tract of your data? Thank you!

  30. hamid BENABBOU on August 21, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    Very nice
    So practical

  31. Laset livingstin on August 21, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    Great video w/ very useful content…Question, so I can easily clear ground for a small (regular small) garden w/ a spade & garden fork?..I realize I need to start small & go larger only if I feel I can handle it…Thanks…

  32. John Courtneidge on August 21, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Again, Exceptional!

    Thank-you!

    Here in West Sussex, I need to find a source of supply of long handles, such as on your spade, shovel and fork.

    All in good time.

    I very much admire your energy and application. And yes, that earlier morale point! Essential and so hard!

  33. arrzfr on August 21, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Thank you for using German measuring technology. We like it if people are precise. 😉

  34. King King on August 21, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Ruler is from a carpentry education center in Biberach Germany. Did you attend? Looks like a neat place.

  42. Megan Spencer on August 21, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    What app or program do you use to keep track of your growing notes? Asking for a farmer friend who needs something besides muddy scraps of paper! Thanks!

  43. Waldemar Pross on August 21, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Where did you get the scythe from? We bought an abandoned property in Kerry and I need to clear lots of overgrown ground.

  44. Hussein Virani on August 21, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    Didn’t see the phone 📱 coming in on the list. Lovely twist practical advise.

  45. Yohannes Lucky on August 21, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    Thank you for educating me.

  46. Julien N4 on August 21, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    Which software do you use to treat your data and make your graphs?

  47. mark luke on August 21, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    After your years of experience, is there advise you would share about greenhouse designs you favor?

  48. Review Time With Tim on August 21, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    I have found that the hoe is very good and use it more and more with the things I do in the garden….making rows or making a mound to plant seeds..getting up weeds …..chopping up the dirt……list goes on

  49. Narendra Meena on August 21, 2021 at 10:57 pm
