I have three garden tools which I'd greatly miss if I lost them, and only one of which I paid for.
The first is my Dad's "Bulldog" spade, which I inherited when he died
The second is an equally good quality fork, with nice sharp tines. This fork was left behind in a shed on an allotment I used to work long ago and it sort of adopted me.
And the third, which I did pay for, is my much-loved Mattock. Here's a picture of it.
It goes with me every time I go to the allotment, but it never spends the night there. Nor do the others.
It's a very old design, used by peasant farmers around the world. They know a thing or two, they peasant farmers. There's nothing like it for clearing ground, short of Agent Orange which I might find hard to get hold of and a tad toxic.
The Great Autumn Tidy being in full swing, the Mattock is getting lots of use.
