  • Checklist for preparing for winter

    Several years ago I made the mistake of leaving the water pump in the barn instead of storing it in the basement.  
    Well, I found out why Daddy always stored it in the basement during the cold days of winter. When I got the pump out to do some irrigation the following summer, the primer tank had split right open.  
    A little bit of moisture was left in the tank and it froze.  The tank is made of cast iron so imagine what a little moisture might do to your favorite terracotta pot.
