I strug­gle to ship out a small pot on a long pole with­out spilling most of the con­tents. Can you of­fer any ad­vice?

AAt this time of year, you cer­tainly need to feed less than you would in the height of sum­mer on com­mer­cials. A small pot clipped on to the top kit of your pole is the an­swer, but you do need to be care­ful to avoid spillage as you ship out. There are a few things you can try. Smooth ship­ping is key, and a cor­rectly-po­si­tioned pole be­hind you will help. An­other way is to use damp pel­lets and gen­tly push them into the pot so that they stick. A few gen­tle taps on the pole when you have shipped out, and the pel­lets will be re­leased. Most im­por­tantly, use a pot with a holed lid like the one shown above. The lid will pre­vent your feed from jump­ing out as you move the pole through your hands.
