Need space for the soft-pots containing the Canna tubers to overwinter, and space for the car. Empty the tow-behind sprayer, assemble the tow-behind fertilizer spreader, start to assemble the wire racks for the Canna tubers. Bonus clip at the end of the possum trying to steal food from the rat trap.
