I got a lot done today----after removing some really tall ragweed, I could see a pretty cypress tree. Several plants had seeds, so I cut the tops off and put them in the trash. There is still lots of ragweed in this area---I'll continue coming here when I can (until it starts pollenating).
I'll try to arrive a little earlier, before the ragweed is in full sun. There was some trash stuck in the weeds by the creek---recent rain probably washed it down to the creek.
