Why to clean garden tools?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Gardening and landscape tools are not cheap. And the more we do to care and maintain them, the longer they last and more efficiently they will perform from season to season and year to year. Of course the best way to keep your gardening tools in tiptop shape is to regularly care for them, not just clean them up once a year.

Always put your tools away clean. This is important because tools that retain moisture can lead to the development of rust. Also, when you have tools and blades that come in contact with various twigs, branches, leaves and dirt, you can easily spread the disease of one plant to another.

How to grow radishes

Radishes prefer cooler temperatures, so start them early in the season before summer heat. Later in the season, plant on east side of the yard or in partial shade.

Water radishes regularly and evenly to prevent them from cracking or drying out.

To avoid having more radishes than you can eat at once, sow seeds in batches 5 to 10 days apart.
