Not Your Average Gardening Tools

I have a tendency to look at pretty much every sort of tool as a possible garden tool. Over the years I've tried out just about everything, but I have whittled it down to about 9 tools I use consistently.

Our table knives tend to disappear into the greenhouse for coaxing seedlings out of those tapered 72-cell seedling flats. Slide it down the side, rotate it around the perimeter, exert a little upwards pressure, and bingo! Out comes a nice, intact plug. Smiling

That's what I used to use before getting the spatula.

That spatula is definitely cool, but I've never seen one like it before.

It's really a great tool! If you have any Laboratory Equipment stores they will have it.
