Friday morning (July 28th) a band of weed warriors took to the pollinator garden to clean up the area and to remove any plants that were growing where they weren't supposed to be. Weeding is pretty straightforward as we have flags placed wherever a plant is supposed to be. This handy method allowed even the most novice gardeners to feel confident in what they were doing!
We did notice a few plants that had been nibbled (a lot) by animals, most likely deer and we will probably have to figure out a way to protect them in future years when they start growing. The entire clean-up took just over 30 minutes. A big thank you to our weeders - Judi, Ralph, Joe, Christine P, Tom, and Paula.
