Weeds get whacked - by hand

Our February volunteer day was fantastic! We had a nice crew out there to help get rid of weeds, and they were amazing! Jen, Chris, Bill, Matt, Leslie, John and Joe were joined by Kresh and Kai (superstar mini-weeder in his new gardening gloves!) and while I turned the compost bins, they filled the empty ones really quickly.

I took lots of photos this time, and I'm going to do more Weed Profiles and also asked each volunteer what their most hated weed was. Everyone has one! I'll post that stuff in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, see if you can find these three plants in the garden right now. They're flowering and SCENTED!  Have a sniff - it will change your day. 

They are, from the left, clockwise: Narcissus, Philadelphus, Eriobotrya (Bronze loquat)

Also shown is the before and after shot of the top of the garden where Jen worked her magic and cleaned out SO many weeds. Wow.
