Since the Halloween snow and a hard frost most of the garden is looking sad. I’ve been working steadily on cleanup. I think I’m doing better this year than usual. I want to make sure I don’t have a lot of cleanup to do in spring when it’s time for mulch.
Canna tubers (above) have been dug up and stored.
Autumn Joy blooms have been cut back. I usually leave the seed heads for the birds but the snow smashed them to the ground. Iris and hibiscus have been cut in the background.
The annuals are gone.
The pile awaits delivery to the city’s compost site.
More to do before the garden is ready for fall compost but I’ve got a good start.
