I bought this at a court house lawn sale in a small town near here.  An old farmer sold it to me for $5.web-fork-0021web-fork-004

I was absolutely thrilled.  It’s a beautiful hand wrought tool that has withstood the test of time.web-fork-0051  

It looks like the Devil’s trident or pitchfork, and it kind of reminds me of Neptune’s Trident. web-fork-0031

 Too bad it doesn’t weild his powers. 

 

 Neptune, not the devil.

cobrahead I have a new favorite tool. I use it for just about every chore in the garden. It lifts weeds, digs holes, pulls out rocks, creates rows, edges, lifts, transplants, pulls up chunks of grass and on and on. The end is sharp on both sides so it slices roots as you dig. That also makes it great for both right and left handed gardeners. The blade is self sharpening so you don’t have to worry about it getting dull. I also like it in my rock garden hill. It can dig through the rough dirt with ease. I just love it. I used it to put in all of my plants this year. CobraHead has made life a whole lot easier. I don’t know how I gardened without it.
