If you are like me, you have on occasion left a hoe, rake, set of pruners or some other garden tool outside for a few days by accident only to find it rusted and in bad shape. Well, the same thing can happen to a tool over winter even if it is left indoors. Over time, cold, moist air will also cause tools to rust as if they were actually outside in the weather. So what should you do? Well, winterize them of course!
