Zoey - have you tried using a digging fork instead of a shovel? I think you may get the same result without actually disturbing the soil or the roots so much. I don't mean a little hand fork; a four-pronged fork with a handle about waist height.
Hmmm, Alice, no, I have not. I am not quite sure just what the digging fork is, but I am going to see what I can find on the net.
The only other tool I ever use is this little fork thing. I just call it my "dandelion puller". It works great to get under individual weeds deep enough to get the root.
Oh my gosh, as I am typing this, I think I figured out what you mean, Alice. Is it like a pitchfork? Because I think I have one in the shed that I never use.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
