Posted on May 6, 2020 by Diana BlakneyScotch broom and other chores Groan! Sid spotted a ton more Scotch broom growing near the clear cut. Sigh! We checked the Doug-fir plantings before beginning the eradication work. While Bill and I were pulling up Scotch broom, Sid came to the nearby woods to find a long skinny pole for the grapes. He saw a dead tree, pushed it over, and loaded it on the Ranger. Get out of the way, Bianca! After Sid returned, we stopped by to pick up a few pieces of firewood. A curled up centipede in Sid’s hand. Sid mulched and fertilized the apple trees near the lower field. Not an easy job! Oregon Checkermallow.
