Not really a garden tool unless you need shade butI thought I'd ask here. I have a new off set umbrella. How do you store yours for the winter?

Very little found.

But I am sharing what I did run across.

Hoping you had a solution for this some time ago. Oh, I miss summer. Whistling

Thanks, @lauriebasler I saw that but didn't want to spend the money on it. I only spent $31 on the umbrella on an Amazon clearance. Lol But seeing that gave me the idea. I had a tarp that was sewn into a tube shape from a memory foam mattress we got. You know how memory foam comes all rolled up? I saved the heavy tarp. I know good garbage when see it!. I used it to cover the umbrella and pulled it into the garage for storage. You can see it in this pix, the tall white thing behind the lawn equipment storage table? That photo was taken amidst the annual garage cleaning month. Not that it's much cleaner with all the plants inside!
