Garden: Don't hang up that rake until
the very last leaves and pine needles have
fallen. Take time to sharpen and lubricate
tools before storing them away until next
season. Give special attention to your lawn
mower by changing the oil, replace the spark
plug, and sharpen the blades. Remember the
weed trimmer, and all other gas-powered
trimming tools too. Place a mulch of leaves
or hay around perennials when the
temperature falls to near freezing.
