Spring fever hits everyone as we finally begin to see some relief from a long, bitterly cold, snow-filled winter.
  
However, despite all the delightful spring days, March can sometimes decide it hasn’t had enough of winter and surprises us with a cold spell just when we think it is safe to plant vegetables for our main-season gardens.
 
Go ahead and plant those tomatoes outside, but keep a protective covering nearby in case of a cold spell. You can use fabric row cover or a cloche. A cloche is a bell-shaped glass covering that you place over your plants to hold in the warmth of the sun and protect against...

For outdoor power equipment owners, there’s nothing more frustrating than a snowthrower that won’t start during that first snow storm, or the lawnmower that refuses to fire up for the first cut of the season. Oftentimes, issues with hard-starting engines stem from bad fuel and the frigid cold.
 
The solution to many of these maintenance woes is actually quite simple: Use an effective fuel treatment at every fill-up and Like your car and shoes, be sure to remove the excess before it freezes. First, run the auger out of snow for several seconds to shake off what you can. Then shut it off. You can use a windshield...

Every year, there are over 35,000 chainsaw-related injuries across North America. That means a lot of chainsaw-wielding homeowners are making haphazard cuts straight across the trunk, probably without reading the tree's natural lean.

The first order of business is getting effective safety gear. A hard hat and face shield, some Kevlar chaps and durable gloves are always strongly recommended.  Be sure all safety gear fits comfortably and safely.
