How to care for garden tools?
Okay I need a mini lesson. Last year I made sure to clean tools with 10% bleach solution between plants then sprayed with WD 40 and wiped off with clean cloth before storing in the shed. This spring they were rusted. I cleaned them with fine steel wool then sharpened so there okay now but what do I need to do different this year?
I hear the old farmers used a mix of sand and motor oil to clean their tools but wouldn't this pit the cutting blades?
Tips/procedures would be helpful. Thanks.
