Here are my second-favorite tools, after my Felco secateurs, my inherited Wolf-Garten interchangable head uber-tools:
First, I cut a big bowl of the taller ones and saved them for dinner... they were yummy sauteed with some olive oil, garlic and lemon! Back in the garden, here's what I did:

...Put the metal rake head back on and levelled the soil, and viola!
I'll dig them in a bit more in a couple of weeks and put some pea straw on top to keep the weeds out. For more about green manure, go here. Next time, planting garlic.
