Hi Folks!  My guess is that most of you know how to sharpen your garden tools already, but just in case you don't, check out my new blog post and video.

This is fundamental stuff that I wished I'd known when I was starting out.  Sharp tools make your work easier!

Thanks for checking it out and please leave some feedback!

You can read the full article here:  How to Sharpen Garden Tools

Great info for the beginners who haven't done much sharpening. I have done a lot due to a love of knives, swords, and pretty much anything sharp and pointy. So this wasn't really for me but I can appreciate the sharing of info for those who might need it. A lot of people do feel intimidated about sharpening. A lot of good tips for the beginner here.
