garden rocker

gardenrockerSo I just saw this on Cool Tools and I am now debating, is it worth it?  Would I use it and like it or would it become more plastic junk? The idea behind the garden rocker ( the one on the show did not have a cushion) is that you sit on it and it pivots giving you reach and lean without straining your joints — or in my case , no more sitting on the ground.   Do I do enough weeding or even planting for it? Would I weed more?  Would I really hurt less, or would it just be different pain?  And will it fit in my garden shed?

    There are no easy ways to weed.

    I meant to add that fair is a kids word, when that comes up

    Not something I would use here. Wouldn’t have used it in the previous gardens either. I move around too much when gardening and am usually doing the “walk and pluck”.

    Now, I would have used something like this at the Garden Center I worked at while growing up. When there, I’d sit with a pile of plants around me and work that pile and move to the next.

    Plant are dense here — Without moving much I can pull up enough Ivy and Grass to cover a dead body.

    I can say weeds and fair don’t go together. I don’t care about dandelions but I will pay a quarter for every (packed)gallon of Ivy you pull out of my yard.

    Does that include the roots?

  6. egb63 said,

    of course. But the roots aren’t deep on the ivy.

    I don’t know why, but I love pulling weeds. I have a garden cart that can be used as a sit. I loved it when I put the edge of bricks in along the walk. i don’t do sitting on the ground very well, I would rather be on one knee. Any way I do like sitting on my cart and it move along with a push from my feet.
