Weed Warrior on the MRG Pollinator Corridor!

For good things to happen, it often takes a village . . . but weeding the mini-meadow pollinator garden on the Goss Logan hillside required a village with a mountain goat. . . or at least a sure-footed 13-year old. Too steep for elder gardeners to negotiate the slope, we had the good fortune of an able-bodied student who needed 2 1/2 hours of community service to complete her end-of-year commitment. Extensive weeding, laying down cardboard, and mulching with wood chips . . . Melanie did an excellent job, while her elders weeded, deadheaded, and transplanted below, all in preparation for the Grand Opening of the tunnel on July 8th!

  1. amelia sereen

    what is the plant/weed she is holding aloft?

  2. It is common mullein. (At first I thought it was lamb’s ear which has similar, soft wooly leaves.) Read about mullein: https://www.bbg.org/news/weed_of_the_month_mullein#:~:text=Mullein's%20first%20year%20of%20growth,by%20bees%20and%20other%20pollinators.
