A new tool!

I have a running list of tools that I love and hope to one day add to my arsenal. 
Last week I fell in love with a new one (well, new to me, anyway): the broadfork.

I borrowed one from a friend to work on our asparagus patch which was completely over run with quack grass ('round here it's witch grass). The grass was suffocating the asparagus and needed to be removed. The broad fork made really quick work of the task. *okay, I had some help from lots of little hands to actually pull the grass out... but without the use of the broadfork to loosen the soil up - forget it!
