Sneeboer’s Royal Dutch Hoe

Sneeboer makes tools that are on my personal short list of things worth spending a little more money for.   They have developed a new tool that made the Best New Product Shortlist at Chelsea.  It is designed specifically for women and it is meant to be used as you walk backwards (leaving you with a fine tilth and no foot prints and less risk of replanting weeds with your feet).

neebooer garden how for women via www.pithandvigor.comI am dubious on the claim that there is no backache and no need to bend — being 5’10 — this is rarely the height that these things are designed for.  But I am sure if you are between 5’5 and 5’8 it will probably be great.  And the handle shape is something I would like to give a try.  I think it would be very comfortable and more ergonomic that just a straight handle.

    I really like the handle since it is supposed to prevent blisters. This would be great for me, because I always seem to forget my gardening gloves!
