Every winter I resolve to do this, yet every spring I’m pulling out rusty tools, with clumps of last years muck cemented on blades, tines and handles! Maybe this winter I will find the time to treat my tools properly…
On the other hand, good quality tools do bear up well despite my shoddy treatment. I remember finding a pair of Felco pruners while sifting compost a few years back. They must have been in there at least a year and were caked in rust, but I managed to remove, well, most of it and today I’m still using those pruners!
Maintain your tools if you can, but at least spring for good quality implements – they last.
