After & Chard

in: Gardening
Under the lilac
Under the Lilac

We have river rock under our lilac. We don’t give that area much water, and the river rock acts as a pretty good weed barrier. I didn’t take a before picture, but you can see the after on the left. It is a lot of work to clean out a year’s debris from around the rock. I don’t have a blower, and raking does not work. Besides, even if either of those worked, I have to get in the rocks to pull the annual California bay tree seedlings. California bay trees are a weed tree. Sure they are native, but they are so invasive. And, no, I do not want a California bay tree grove in my backyard.

On the right is my lovely chard. It has been a good veggie crop this year.
