A stirrup hoe is an essential weeding tool for any market gardener. The tool is a U-shaped blade that oscillates when you move it back and forth on the ground and is attached to a long wooden handle. They come in three different sizes, either with the 3 ¼-inch (8 cm), 5-inch (12.5 cm) or a 7-inch (17.75 cm) blade.

All Hoss seeds are non-GMO, we are leading the seed industry in germination rates with constant testing, and storing our seeds in a proper, climate-controlled environment.
Never wait until you see large weeds before you grab your hoe. Instead, hoe the soil every week or two, and as soon after every rain as the soil crust begins to dry. This way, weed seedlings are killed before they get a firm footing.
Scuffle hoes are also called loop, hoop or stirrup hoes because the head resembles the loop-shaped stirrup of a saddle. They are designed to be used with a back-and-forth motion that cuts on both the pull and the push. With a bladed edge on both sides, the scuffle hoe is considered the best garden hoe for weeding.
The tool is designed to consistently cultivate soil to a depth of 1.5 inches, so its main purpose is loosening topsoil and prepping beds or bare areas of lawn for seed starting by mixing soil or added organic matter. The Garden Weasel comes with instructions and information about the tool's limited lifetime warranty.
Most vegetable seeds will last through their expiration date if kept cool, dry and away from sunlight. Baker Seed guarantees seeds for at least two years after purchase. Most seeds last three to five years after purchase, but those dates can vary depending on the variety.
Will 20 year old seeds grow?
There is a good chance that those old seed packets will have a high percentage of seeds that will germinate just fine. Most seeds, though not all, will keep for at least three years while maintaining a decent percentage of germination. And even a group of very old seeds may have 10 or 20 percent that still sprouts.

Hula Hoe is a Weeder with a Wiggle!
For weeding, though, the Hula Hoe (also called a stirrup hoe or scuffle hoe) is a far better tool for the job. The sharp steel blade skims horizontally below the soil surface, slicing through weed roots while leaving the soil in place.
