Maintaining and Sharpening your Garden Tools

   

 

 

Cleaning, maintaining and sharpening your garden tools is a great way to get prepared for Spring. This exercise will help you evaluate the condition of your tools and decide if any need to be replaced or repaired. Thinking  about how you use your tools will help research options as you do your garden research. Sharp tools are easier to use and damage plants less so they can heal faster. The video links show different ways to sharpen tools. l keep a BBQ grill brush, sharpener, bastard file, sharpening stone and cooking oil spray in my small tool basket so I can touch up my tools during the growing season.
