-{{:​garden:​cultivate:​tools:​img_1425dw.jpg?​300 |Diamond hoe from Red Pig Garden Tools. The name Red Pig Garden Tools is a registered trademark of R.Z and R.K. Denman, Boring, Oregon 97009}}My most used tool is a **diamond hoe**. I have two, one with a long (60") handle I use standing up and another with a short handle I use kneeling for working close to plants. I slide the diamond-shaped blade parallel to the ground, just a little bit below, so that the blade chops off weeds. This works fine for weeds just sprouting, separating the leaves from the root. It's not as effective for plants with a tap root, perslane or rhizomatous plants. Using the diamond hoe makes for quick work on a first pass at beheading weeds.\\+{{:​garden:​cultivate:​tools:​img_1425dw.jpg?​300 |Diamond hoe from Red Pig Garden Tools.
