Working in the garden or in the garden with a blunt instrument — only a waste of time and effort. And to make the shovel or hoe sharp — requires grindstone. However, I succeeded without him: just beat the cutting part with a hammer, as is done when working with a scythe. You need only to follow, to form a notch, and try not to overdo it, that is, “to permansit” cutting edge of the spade, and he will die, and to discourage digging. When the padding is still hardening hardening of metal and tool-less blunts, and hence a longer service life.
