Mike can be pretty clever sometimes, coming up with solutions to fix things around the homestead.
This is my hoe - the handle had broken about half way down. Mike cut it off straight and then cut a notch out of one side. He then took a freshly peeled piece of maple and did a similar notch on the end and then used screws to hold it together.
This is my potato fork - it has had a branch handle for two years now. The handle goes all the way down to the metal base.
I enjoy working with them and feeling the branch in my hands as I work in the soil.
