Winter prep: Anyone else in the US perhaps Northeast / MidAtlantic thinking about it?


#1

I like to plan and prepare. I’m already scouring the Forum and reading up on how to prepare for over wintering.

What’s the deal with straw bales, black paper wrapping and such?

As for feeding, best successes are with what and how and when?

Tips welcome.
