Weeding and Weed notes 3Jun11

On 3Jun11, Mark weeded most of the garden.  In particular, a stirrup hoe was used to remove large weeds in the boarder area adjacent to the community garden, and also in the walking isles.

Notes on weeds seen:

Field bindweed is throughout garden, both seedlings and vines, some in flower.
Henbit is still present, in flower, but on its way out.
Annual bluegrass is everywhere but not too many young plants.
A couple of Nightshade plants, in leaf only, were seen in the beds.  Most likely Solanum nigrum.
A couple of Doveweed plants were seen in the boarder area.  Species is Eremocarpus setigerus.
Pigweed is now well established and several larger plants in boarder areas were in flower.
Cheeseweed is in two conditions: seedlings and older scenescent plants with seeds already fallen.
Knotweed is very old and lanky, forming mats in boarder areas.
Scarlet Pimpernel, Anagallis arvensis, is widespread, and forming small mats in beds and boarder areas.
Black Mustard is in flower in boarder areas.
Ryegrass, Lolium perenne, is in flower in boarder areas.
