    It is a little slow around here this time of year so I thought I would ask a question. I'm a homeowner and would like to add one head to one of my zones.

    What is the easiest way for me to dig a trench about 10' long? I will obviously be doing this by hand. What is the best tool to use?

    Meet the Shoveler!

    While digging one fateful day, ditch-digger and quarryman Stan Belarsky discovered a holy singing shovel that once belonged to the legendary King Arthur of Camelot. As he was a just and honest man, the shovel wisely took him as its new master.

    Now in his nimble, strong hands the shovel is a wicked averger of injustice and grand protector of the weak and downtrodden. The shovel has a mind of its own and talks in "Ye olde English" style, but will obey its master as long as his heart is pure...

    You do realize that demonstrating your knowledge of The Shoveler brands you as a geek :)
