Sharp Stuff

I was gifted with a warm afternoon.
It was perfect to spend some time outside sharpening garden tools for the coming growing season.

  1. I always find it really therapeutic to bring the tools up together for the coming year. Glad you had a good day for it.

  2. Wow-you had your work cut out for you (ha-pun!--though not intended!)
    I wish we would have a decent day out-I'd love to start tacking my "shop"--it's full of Christmas greens and displays just randomly thrown in there. We won't have a warmish day until at least April. I went in there the other day-it was SO cluttered and I had a terrible time finding my 6 packs for seed starting. What a mess!!!!

  3. GoSS, yes, we were blessed with some extraordinary days of warm weather. Any time we get a 50 degree day in the middle of January in Nebraska, it's a good day. The rest of the week will be above freezing every day. This is not the normal January weather for Nebraska but it is enjoyable. It gives me a chance to get started on some outside winter clean up. I've already started working on the seed starting station so that will be ready for the February seed starts. It's really nice to get a break in the winter to enjoy the outside sunshine, don't you think?

    Have a great tool sharpening day.

  4. Oh dear. I do not even remember when I last sharpened my tools. LOL! Sad but true. Mine are also in need of some oil to ward of the rust too. You have brought me to shame girl. LOL! Have a wonderful week. I am enjoying this January thaw too.

  5. It is a great time to do it. I usually go get the tool to use it and am so occupied in my work that I wished it was sharper but it isn't and I am not going to take the time when gardening.

  6. Good reminder. I have some that haven't been sharpened in years and there's no excuse not to get it done now

  7. Wow, looks like you have quite a tool arsenal there. We're expecting warmer weather this coming week and I plan to get outside to do some pruning and trimming. I was able to do some cleanup work one day last week. Could barely get up the next morning!

  8. My Felcos need new blades and all of my tools would love a little love. Thanks for the reminder!
