Preparing for winter...lots of pics

Message from Brad - Pittsburgh

Protecting the washie. Lights went on last weekend. Frostcloth this weekend, then cage built, stuffed with leaves, protective cover, and shrinkwrap. Please, no comments about the big permanent garbage can in my landscape. My trachy will get the same treatment once it gets colder. The goal is to protect as minimally as possible this year, since I am pro-Sam, ant-Dennis, this is an easy winter sort of deal!

Euc in the cage, and letting trachy and minors unprotected for as long as possible, hopefully not much....
