This is my trusty hand garden fork used to loosen soil around established plants to allow aeration.
I look after my tools, of whatever type and most of them still look a lot newer than they actually are. This fork is about 30 years old and when not in use hangs amongst my other garden tools against the wall in my garage.
It's easy to care for garden tools. Just wash them with the hose after use and dry them in the sun before putting them away. Don't leave them lying around outside as they will soon rust if this is done.
