Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932) is firmly ensconsed in the pantheon of great gardeners. Her opus, "Home and Garden", first published in 1900, contains chapters on The Workshop and The Kinship of Common Tools and includes a tender paean to the pleasure of wielding an old, worn spade. Her favorite weeder was a short handled, two tine fork now commonly called a "Jekyll Weeder". Our version is forged from 1/2-inch diameter rod. The gently curved, sharply pointed and about 8-inch long tines are about an inch apart, leaving about a 5/8-inch gap between. Overall, the tool is about a foot long. It penetrates soil easily and is used to pry, twist and extract the most stubborn weeds.
