Years ago, as I was pulling weeds and breaking up clumps of soil with my hands, an experienced gardener friend of mine was continually admonishing me, "use your tool!" She had developed rheumatoid arthritis, and knew the value of working ergonomically and safely. As my joints are now starting to show the strain of garden wear and tear, I wish I'd listened way back then! The right tool can make all the difference, saving you time, effort, and possibly pain.
