Weeds (small trees)
The first in a series of posts about my weeds. I'm becoming closely acquainted with these. Thankfully in this plot we don't seem to have any of the dreaded horsetail, but we do have lots of other weedy interest.
This year the seedlings of the sycamore trees which border the plot seem much more prevalent than in the past. We hoe them out, more spring up.
If the plot was left to its own devices for a couple of years, we'd have a copse of thriving saplings. As it is, each week we start all over again and hoe them out.
