A Crude but Effective Implement
This is an exceedingly useful implement for leveling the soil preparatory to planting seeds, and for packing the soil about the roots of transplanted seedlings and cuttings. It is a tool that you can make with the aid of a rake handle and a couple of boards, and it should be part of the equipment of even the smallest garden.
