Grow, make & mend means repairing good tools, not replacing, and keeping them in good shape with some simple steps.
1. SCRAPE AND BRUSH the muck off after each use – not a project, just a quick go, but frequently. Clods and soil on tools traps moisture which leads to rust and rot.
2. WIRE BRUSH the whole tool with a brass/copper (not as harsh as steel wire) brush to lift ground in dirt and give both timber and steel parts a ‘tooth’ to receive nourishing oil for protection and longevity. We use a thin all over wipe down with boiled linseed oil and a cotton rag (that can be composted when it gets really tatty)
3. FOR SHARPNESS we use a stone with handle – easy to use and just a few swipes across the blades, points or tines keeps the tool shipshape and prevents you having to use a blunt tool with too much force to be either safe or comfortable.
