"Moustache" Hoe Weeds Both Sides Of Row
It gets it's name from the obvious reason that it's shaped like a moustache. The curled ends go on either side of the row. The arch in the hoe will clear seedlings 6 to 7 in. tall.
Once the crop is up and going, you can install a bar across the middle of the hoe and used it for conventional weeding between the row.
"It slices through weeds without clogging up. We had the first units cast at a local Amish blacksmith shop and workers in the shop started using the hoes right away. They really caught on fast," says Maringer, who started selling the hoes this spring.
Sells for $42.50 plus S&H.
