M.L. WELLS from oleantimesherald said that As the snow flies and settles, it is time to take care of our hard-working partners — our tools.
A good gardener doesn’t need many but they should be high-quality and you should take care of them. If you do, they will see you to the grave, which is more than can be said for most modern purchases.
A $100 tool will last eight times longer than one at half the price!
By now, most garden chores should be done; you and your tools can take a four-month rest. Now, what do you need and how do you take care of them?
My list includes a long handled pointed shovel, a short T-handled, four-prong spading fork, a grass rake, a “regular” rake, a hoe, a pitchfork (a midsummer murderer’s weapon of choice), a trowel and a pair of shears, a pruning saw.
