You mean a pickax and pry bar aren't part of your regular garden tool
assortment? We've built whole walls and paves paths with what I dig up each year
just trying to plant in the cultivated area. Frost has even heaved large
fieldstones into the nice, originally stone-free raised bed area.

I can't imagine a garden without rocks. I guess that's why my mattock is one of
my favorite garden tools.
