Fiskars Deluxe Telescoping Weed Remover Fiskars SoftTouch Weeder

We went to the garden armed with these things and we put a good dent into our weed problem!!

Significant Other worked with the weed machine, the Fiskars Deluxe Weed Remover, and he was impressed! It pulled up each evil weed, with minimal effort and no back strain. The thing looks like a joke, but it works great.

The reviews said it was going to break after about 20 minutes of work. I was completely prepared for this to happen. And I'm happy to report that SO worked longer than 20 minutes (maybe close to an hour?) and it hasn't broken yet! If it survives to clear out the rest of the evil weed... it'll be well worth the 40$ I paid for it!

I killed some weeds with the handheld weeder. It worked, but not as well as the machine... the mud is just too soft to "pop" the weed out. I think it'll work better in the summer, once things dry out a bit!

Last weekend, after our first attempt to kill this weed, I was crying with frustration and was worried that we would have to give up our community garden plot. But with these tools, there is a glimmer of hope!

There's still much to do, but I feel much better about it now.
