Quackgrass Attack!

Before

After from opposite Before

July 26:  After removing watercress from the Indian Springs quackgrass quickly moved in. So we took care of that, too.  I didn’t have Paul’s brute strength around because he was away acquiring inspiration from another one of our precious planets natural gems- Isle Royale I think he called it- so, as per WDNR,  I knocked it back with some Aquaneat and dug it out with my trusty three-prongued groundbreaker and a garden pitch fork.  We gotta give those Native Sedges, Rushes, Forbs and Brook Trout a chance, don’t we.
