Welcome to our very first "LEVI'S WHAT IS IT?". We have many unusual and useful items from the past at HISTORIC VALENTOWN. Many are related to our agricultural past and some even we do not know what the heck they were used for? This one we do know,..., but do you? All of these tools more or less did the same job and all saved time for a certain task. They are still making them today for purchase but as you can see, many were home made.

Take your best guess in the comment section of this photo on our Facebook page:

We will post how many right answers we had on our December News Letter, so don't forget to sign-up to get it! It's free and goes out on or about the 22nd of each month. (http://historicvalentownmuseum.org/page.php/newslettersubscribe)

Wow, that was too easy!!!

We had several correct guesses as to usage, and it took less than 24 hours for someone to guess the correct name of the tools. These are dibbles!!!

"A dibber or dibble or dibbler is a pointed wooden stick for making holes in the ground so that seeds, seedlings or small bulbs can be planted. Dibbers come in a variety of designs including the straight dibber, T-handled dibber, trowel dibber, and L-shaped dibber."

Good job!
