The hoe is a tool used to till the soil in your farm so you can plant seeds. It can also be used as a weapon.
Use EditTo use your Hoe, press your "Use Tools" button (default Z on keyboard, X on X-box gamepad). You will notice your starter Hoe will go through two steps before it actually hits the ground. This is its charge time. Unlike other farming games, you can actually move while you are charging your tool. This can be especially useful when using your Hoe to fight mobile enemies.
Using your Hoe to dig, till soil, or fight enemies will increase your Hoe proficiency Skill. Each level of Hoe Skill you have will increases the speed at which you charge the Hoe by 5%.
Your tools can be upgraded at the Blacksmith's shop for a cost.
Upgrading your tools allows you to use them to break down stronger materials and/or be more time efficient.
