i learn something every time i read these boards!  i  have one of these and didn't even know it! it is hanging out in the well house.  i thought it was for mixing paint! 

i am not sure it would work in my yard since we have all clay here.  i imagine these are used for prefab beds for bulbs and such.

i do have one of the old corkscrew ones i picked up at an estate sale that is heavy metal and has the t handle on top.  it is strong enough to cut through the clay, but honestly, it is a pain in the butt to use.  if i just stand there to turn it i can't keep the stupid thing going in straight and if i just push down and walk in a circle i end up dizzy.  lol.

what were you gonna do with yours?

Last year I did almost all transplants in the garden. I typically work with my daughter who I think would greatly enjoy the auger and my ground is soft enough to use it for the transplants.
I do think bulbs would be the best use of it.
