Yesterday afternoon, I pulled out the dried up calendula, gomphrena, pansy, and scarlet flax plants from the flower bed. Into the compost bins they went. I couldn't budge the rose mallow plants - deep roots - or the kale or Swiss chard, so those will have to wait until the Spring to be removed.
I'm glad I did that yesterday. This morning, it is -11 degrees and everything is covered with a heavy frost. Butters (neighbour's cat) spent her second night at our house, even though her people only live two doors down.
Today I'll be making a run to the post office to mail some Speckled Algonquin beans to the Populuxe Seed Bank in Edmonton for their collection.
