Rain showers means weeds

Agave gypsophylla flower
Last weekend's volunteer workday was light on volunteers (me, Matt and Chris) but we eradicated tons of weeds. Pennsylvania Garden is looking great thanks to regular weeding sessions almost every week recently, but Pennsylvania Railroad garden down the street is a weedy mess.

Chris worked away in the left bed while I got into the midst of the top bed and many weeds met their fate.


Agave salmiana (?) flower
Matt set to work removing weeds from the rain garden at the bottom and 6-7 giant tubtrugs of weeds were whisked away, as well as lots of trash. But there's SO much more... I think it might be time for a weekend weedathon!

A couple of Agaves are flowering right now - check them out. They will flower for about 6-12 months, then die. Exciting, but also sad!
