This is my stick. I use it for planting in the raised beds only, because it's not actually strong enough to stand up to the heavy clay of the big garden plot. Here in the raised beds though, it's invaluable.
I poke the holes for seeding, and I draw the furrows when we decide to plant in rows. I dig out weeds, etc. I think that a good dirt pokin' stick is a very valuable tool for square foot gardening.
I've been setting up a couple more raised beds, since I've filled the ones we already own with onions and garlic. I have an onions and garlic addiction. So, I set up a couple more and got one part of them planted with cabbage and broccoli starts, with beets in the center square foot.
I just came in for lunch, and now I'm headed back out to the dirt to finish filling the new beds and get them planted with carrots, parsnips, turnips, radishes, buttercrunch lettuce, spinach, mustard greens, kale, and kolrabi.
