    Weekend Gardener

     

    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 terra-cotta pot.
