Saturday was a weed day, with white sweet clover and thistles the primary targets. We're getting near the end of weed season, perhaps one or two more weekends before we switch to brush-cutting. We'll also have seed collecting days coming up, including this Sunday August 27 at Swallow Cliff and Sunday September 9 at Hidden Pond.
The account and photo below came from Doug Bosco's FB post; your correspondent was sweltering in the Arkansas heat last weekend, and made it back home in time for more sweltering, Illinois style.
Black Partridge Woods Sunday August 20
John Marlin hosted a weed assault on Sunday, clipping two bags of teasel heads from the south (dairy farm) side of Bluff Road at Black Partridge Woods. It was a hot day, by his account, and John seemed pleased with the work that was accomplished.
