I thought the snow we had would make Betty put her sunflower stalk destruction project on hiatus, but I forgot that stubbornness is ingrained in Betty’s breed. I watched her find the snow covered stalk she’d been working on for the past few days and proceed to rip it to shreds as normal. Winter might be the off-season for most landscapers, but Betty doesn’t buy that wimpy it’s too cold stuff.
Yard improvement is one of Betty’s hobbies. One thing that bugs her is an unsightly pile of sunflower stalks lying in the backyard. These things have to go and Betty will make it so.
Her technique is to yank the largest remaining stalk (6 feet long and 6 inches in circumference) out of the pile and then take a few days to chew the whole thing into small pieces of attractive mulch. For variety, Betty will make me chase her around the yard while she drags whatever remains of the stalk until it disintegrates. It is certain that the pile will be gone by spring.
