The Garden: Don't put away the rake
until all of the leaves and pine needles
have fallen to the ground. Even though lawns
rest in winter, they still need all the
winter sunlight they can get. Also, take the
time to organize, clean, and sharpen your
garden tools. Keep them from underfoot,
cleaned, and sharpened and they will be
ready to go come spring. And don't forget
the lawn mower. Drain the gas tank, change
the oil, check the spark plug for wear, and
sharpen those blades!
