Now that the seasons are changing give your yard the once over and see what you can pick up and get into your shed before the first frost.
- Clean and dry patio furniture. Either cover it with a heavy tarp or store inside a shed or garage to protect it from the elements.
- Clean soil from planters. Bring pots made of clay or other fragile materials indoors. Because terra cotta pots can swell and crack, lay them on their sides in a wooden carton. If you have aloft in your shed put them up in the loft so you do not use up valuable floor space.
- Dig up flower bulbs, brush off soil, and label them. Store bulbs in a bag or box with peat moss in a cool, dry place for spring replanting.
- When the weatherman says it is going to possibly snow tomorrow you might want to switch the snow blower from the shed into the garage and put the garden tractor into the shed so you will not have to shovel a path to your shed to get the necessary items to clear your driveway.
Just remember to keep hydrated and warm!
