December Northern California - Things To Do #1 - Tool care

I will go through what we, Northern Californians, need to do in the month of December as gardeners. This is based on books and articles. I will tell you if I did or not, and why...

Thing to do #1 is store your tools. Store tools include not only put them away but also lubricate them. Tools include lawn mowers.

Well, my tools are always stored. However, I only oil and sharpen them in the beginning of spring... According to some articles, we should put the lawn mower away. I will not, as I still use once a month. That is, my grass is growing very slowly, but is still growing. But I will sure clean my lawn mower either January or February.

As usual, I like to add a picture related to the subject... Well, I do not like to take pictures of tools :-), so here it is a picture of my artificial poinsettia: very holiday-ish, don't you think?
