Winterizing Garden Tools

By paulgrow
October 19, 2011

All of the leaves have been raked and added to the compost; frost has put all of the plants to sleep for the winter. The outdoor furniture has been covered or moved into the garage. We still have one final task to accomplish before completing our outdoor work for the season. We need to winterize those tools, both power and manual, to ensure they will be ready to go in the spring

Thanks for the hints, Paul! We don't really have winter like many people do, but still, it's great learning!

edited to add that I shared it on facebook since I do have a lot of friends that live around the country and Canada.
