Cleaning Your Garden Tools by Donna Duffy

Gardeners tend to get the mid-winter blues this time of year. Summer seems so far away! We nourish our gardening souls by looking through seed catalogues, feeding the birds, reading our garden journals from last year. But there are some gardening tasks that can be done now so you'll be ready when the ground thaws and the first shoots of spring appear.

One of those tasks is to go through all your garden tools, repair or replace those in need, and give the remaining tools a good cleaning.

Gail Wilson, Jeffco Master Gardener, demonstrates a great way to clean tools. Watch her technique in this short YouTube video. Thanks, Gail!
