The ground is frozen, and we are cutting back the tarragon and rosemary so we can cover the plants with several inches of bark mulch.
Hopefully, this procedure keeps the cycle of freezing and thawing to a minimum and enhances the chance of the plants' winter survival.
Our mild weather allows some spring clean-up chores to be completed several months early.
We like the late start to winter. In fact, we wouldn't mind if it never came this year!
