Use these days to clean your tools and prepare them for spring gardening. Clean tools to remove dirt and any lingering chemicals. Sharpen your pruners, loppers, shovels, spades and mower blades. Don’t know how to sharpen? Go to your favorite nursery where the staff can show you how, or check online for detailed videos that show you how to sharpen any blade. When finished sharpening, use a clean rag to put a thin coating of oil on each blade. If your tools live in an unheated garage or tool shed, this will prevent moisture from rusting the metal.
