Finn and I declared a war on the weeds in the Upper Garden yesterday. Max and I soaked the area with the garden hose first. Then we pulled and dug out the weeds.
We put the weeds on the warm paver sidewalk and let them dry out before we swept them into piles. After drying overnight, we will haul them to the compost pile.
Finn learned how to recognize horsetail weed, a bane of my gardening existence this summer. If Finn pulled out one horsetail plant, he pulled out thirty. He is very good at weeding with his grandmother and especially good at getting in the little places where an adult cannot go.
