For those in the U.S., I'd seen the tip to pick up a pack of 4 knives at the Dollar Store (I prefer the solid ones, not the steak) - I keep them tucked by the edging in a few places around the garden and they're great for weeding. https://www.facebook.com/annie...

(Joanna asked me to post this as a separate tip).
Remember, it is dangerous to the environment and ILLEGAL in MANY states to mail plants/bulbs/cuttings in. Let’s all practice Do No Harm while we walk this earth and find other ways to connect to one another through gardening.

Excellent! So glad you did!

Steak knives are serrated, right? These are not?

Annie from Annies Annuals posted her pic with the steak knives (serrated). I prefer the butter style as they're all one piece so won't suffer that breaking in 2 bit. Saves my hands to have them about as I always seemed to see and need to pull a few weeds when I'd be walking about without my tools.
