Garden Tool Changes Heads Fast
The Connecta® from Johnny’s Selected Seeds is an interchangeable tool system designed to withstand the rigors of market gardening. A simple push-button release lets you change out the cultivation head in seconds.
    “The Connecta tool system resulted from several years of gathering feedback from farmers and trusted tool consultants,” says Joshua D’Errico, Johnny’s Selected Seeds Community Marketing Specialist. “We’ve made design adjustments over the last few years based on rigorous on-farm trialing.”
    The tool is built from durable, corrosion-resistant stainless steel and cast aluminum, while the handle is made from ash. It’s compatible with multiple styles of tool heads, including a stirrup hoe, contour wire head, and collinear hoe. The contour wire hoe head has a low-profile design for cultivating crops like lettuce spaced 4 in. and 6 in. apart. Use it to cut close to crop stems with minimal risk of harming them. The collinear hoe head lets you remove weeds from an upright, ergonomic position and works best for crops spaced 4 in. to 7 in. apart.
    You can store the extra tool heads on the included belt loop clip for quick switches while out in the field.
    Johnny’s sells both a Connecta Starter Kit ($89.99) and Cultivation Kit ($129). The Starter Kit includes the Connecta receivers, ashwood handle carrying clip, and both a collinear 4-in. hoe head and contour wire 4-in. hoe head. The Cultivation Kit adds a 7-in. collinear head and a 6-in. contour wire head. It’s also compatible with a 6-in. stirrup hoe head, sold separately.
