First time out at Cap since the pandemic began and it's as lush and lovely as I remembered it. Our major target on this day was reed canary grass. We worked our way south and east along the green trail, snipping the seed heads along the way.
It's a shame we're not brush-cutting at this juncture. The multi-flora rose is in full bloom and screams its presence; you make a mental note to come and get it at a later date.
Hidden Pond Sunday June 28
More reed canary along Kean Avenue at Hidden Pond, but our major target was sweet clover, both white (Mellilotus alba) and yellow (M. officinale). They were mostly found near the sidewalk, while the reed canary was distributed more widely. Cyndi's collapsible yard waste containers were a boon, allowing us to easily deposit the 'bad guys' while limiting the dropping of seeds.
It was quite the warm and sunny morning and two hours was a good duration. We pulled a lot of weeds out in that time and felt we accomplished some good.
