The Garden: Don't put away the rake until all of the leaves and pine needles have fallen to the ground. Even though lawns rest in winter, they still need all the winter sunlight they can get. Also, take the time to organize, clean, and sharpen your garden tools. Keep them from underfoot, cleaned, and sharpened and they will be ready to go come spring.
