The Peace Bridge provides pedestrians and cyclists, access to the downtown core from the north side of the Bow river.

To be able to offer this spectacular, accidental yellow version with its dazzling deep yellow skin and dense sweet flesh is beyond thrilling for me. Balanced flavor, sweet with just a little tang in the background and growing on wispy vines just like the original red Anna Russian. This huge, sprawling plant produces heavy clusters of golf ball sized, incredibly delicious, deep red ambrosial fruit with tiny golden jewel-like sparkles within the red skin.

In the first year, its rosette of leaves produces large amounts of sugars, which are stored in the taproot to provide energy for the plant to flower in the second year.

No Genetically Engineered Seeds

Italian ‘Lolla Rossa’ lettuce (Lactuca sativa ‘Lollo Rossa’) is a frilly, red-tipped variety whose loose leaves add a distinctive nutty flavor to salads. Perfect for zones 6 to 13, this plant likes to ramble in full sun, so provide structural support and see if yours reaches a lofty 12 feet! And, unlike many modern hybrids that produce a single crop, heirlooms are likely to produce throughout the growing season, instead of saddling you with a huge harvest you can’t use fast enough. This is when plant breeders introduced the first hybrids. Conversely, rare seeds have a direct line of ancestry and are never genetically engineered. Many are hundreds of years old, with international origins. The age requirement for a variety to be designated an heirloom is debatable. Some authorities say that a cultivar must have been introduced prior to the year 1951.

Yellow Pear Tomato

Choose a sunny location for your tree and place your tree at least 15 feet from a building, swimming pool or septic system and 8 feet from a driveway. If you are creating a group of River Birch, trees can be planted within 3 feet of each other to form a clump, or further apart, perhaps 10 feet, to make a grouping. For a boundary row or along a stream, allow 10 to 15 feet between trees, depending on how dense you want the row to be. Plant the River Birch as a single specimen, or as a beautiful group of 3 or 5 trees, since Birch always seem to look lovely in a group. This tree also makes a great fast-growing boundary tree to your property, or a wind-break. Because it thrives in wet conditions it is also great for preventing river-bank erosion.

The economic conditions in Calgary began to deteriorate in 1892, as development in the downtown slowed, the streetcar system started in 1889 was put on hold and smaller property owners began to sell. For the Town of Calgary 1884 turned out to be a success, however, two dark years were ahead for the fledging community. The turmoil started in late-1885 when Councillor Clarke was arrested for threatening a plain clothes Mountie who entered his saloon to conduct a late night search. When the officer failed to produce a search warrant Clarke chased him off the premise, however the Mountie returned with reinforcements and arrested Clarke.

From Seed Indoors

Some of the newer chrysanthemum cultivars do not need pinching, but most benefit from the practice. Plant your hardy chrysanthemums in spring in northern areas, as they are more likely to survive the winter once established. In southern areas, mums may be planted in either spring or autumn, though fall offers the greatest benefit of avoiding summer heat. If you want to treat your garden to an abundance of beautiful flowers, it’s just a matter of finding the rose plant you like best.
