U-Dig-It Folding Shovel

I came across this nice little folding hand shovel called the “U-Dig-it” at a surplus store. It measures 5 3/4 inches when folded and weighs six ounces with the convenient belt holster. I used it this morning to transplant some okra seedlings and I can also see taking this tool camping.

I dig the U-Dig-It design, and I already prefer it to the hand shovel that got buried in the yard somewhere a few months ago. I can see this tool becoming part of my gardening “EDC“.

  1. I totally dig it! I also dig the little feature on Mr. Homegrown I spotted today in the new issue of Urban Farm magazine… sweet thoughts on sustainability being a mindset. Cheers!

  2. I have that same type of shovel and love it! Clearly a good choice, you’ll definitely get a lot of use out of it. I’ve had mine for a few years and it’s a keeper.
