That’s Not a Knife…

This is a knife!

Just got a new soil knife from A.M. Leonard the other day, and it’s excellent.  Years ago, when i was working as a gardner in colorado, i used this for nearly everything, weeding, cutting, transplanting, digging small and medium holes.  Sadly, i lost it in the move to DC.   Just be careful, cause the new ones are really sharp!

I used it just the other day to transplant my eggplants and sweet peppers.  Ended up going with 3 Black Beauty and 4 Japanese long eggplants, and 6 sweet pepper plants  this year.  Remembering how big eggplants gets (very bushy!),  i gave them their own bed so they don’t shade out any neighbors.

The jack in the pulpit (which i completely forgot where i planted last year!) has really taken off with the recent rains, as has the garlic.
