Hey Kids...you may remember that Amanda and I have been collaborating with the cool peeps over at OpenSky to build our very own GEG OpenSky store. It is a store that reflects our preferences (some would say weirdness) in garden stuff. We are just starting up, and will be adding new products as we go along.
One of the great things about it is that we will write reviews of our products and tell you the ways in which we use them...ok,most of the ways, some may be inappropriate for public consumption. Anyway, once you get the product home...let us know if you have any questions about it. All you have to do is go to our Facebook Fan Page and leave us a comment. It's sort of like having your own personal garden consultants...if they were sarcastic, rambling, drinking consultants.
So to get us started, I am going to post a couple of links to my all time fave rakes. The Garden Shark and the GroundHog. Now, I wrote a review about these last year on Gardener to Farmer....and I loved them so much that I had to add them to our store. Here's an excerpt from that post:"In our spring clean up, we decided to test two rakes sent to me by Radius. The green one is the Garden Shark and the orange is the Groundhog.
So here's the scoop on these two lovelies. Let me start by saying I have always hated traditional rakes...I have to stoop over and work too hard to get a minimal amount accomplished. These rakes have an extra long handle and are ergonomically designed to work for you, not the other way 'round. Both of us agreed that these two rakes are by far our favorites.
I am big on finding tools for the garden that are more friendly to my body. Conserving energy and effort means I can stay in the garden longer...which is exactly what we did. We worked ourselves tired (four hours later) but felt completely satisfied...and much like expectant mothers, we have gone outside every day since to check on our babies...no sprouting yet."
