Amazing weather

The amazing weather continues ... a week to summer and it feels like autumn. The bushland was beautiful with the sparkling droplets of recent rain. The Geraldton Carnation Weed and Veldgrass weeds love this weather, so we go after them to stop them producing more seed.
Geraldton Carnation Weed is no problem to remove - its slender stem is easily removed with little disturbance.
The difficulty with Veldgrass is that it is hard to remove without causing some disturbance. If we leave the plant and just remove the flowering heads, we will have to come back within two weeks and do it again. Our approach is to remove isolated plants where the disturbance is less of a problem than ongoing seed production. We leave patches where there is lots of grass.
