Last summer when Rich's birthday rolled around kid #4 (Dylan) asked him what he wanted for his birthday.
Rich replied that he wanted a broadfork for digging in the garden.
Kid #4's eyebrows rose.
If you ever want a few minutes of quiet contemplation tell your teen you want a broadfork for you birthday.
We had been reading about broadforks for some time. A couple of our favorite gardening books by Elliot Coleman (The New Organic Grower and Four Season Harvest) talk about using them.
Since we attempted to go to a year round garden this year we often just replant sections as soon as they become available.
This piece of equipment makes that easier to do.
