Is your garden shed bulging with mediocre tools? Most likely we all have many and hopefully a few winners scattered among them. Those winners do wonders for easing garden projects, and here are some that might work for you. They come recommended by four local Master Gardeners.

In the accompanying photo, Connie Fliegel of Quincy shows off her recent Santa gift of a handy-dandy forged weeder. Santa must have visited an Ace hardware store, she thinks.

She expects this new find to be more hand comfortable with its ergonomic design as well as being able to dig into small cracks.
