Hoes, rakes, and claw-hand weeders should be used in cleaning up and cultivating the plots.
Hoes of various types are useful when the plants become somewhat larger or when one does not have the wheel cultivators.
Hoes and shovels were flat bones fastened to wooden handles, and brooms were bunches of brush bound together.
