This afternoon I spent several hours sanding and stripping and removing rust from an assortment of garden tools; a shovel, spading fork, three rakes, and a really neat hand rake. I also had to throw out a nice Corona rose pruner as it was beyond help. Here's my beef; my wife leaves tools out to rust and or loses them. I'm not sure how many Corona hand pruners she's let rust and ruined and then lost. I think she lent the loppers to her friend. I'm not sure as I haven't seen them for a year. So, this weekend, my project is to restore the aforementioned tools and to rehab the wheelbarrow. The wood is extremely dry and the barrow is quite rusted. I love my wife and don't bug her about this stuff because in the scheme of things it's not that big of a deal, but it's one of my pet peeves. What's yours?
