I have worked on the little thistles within the wall of Apple Tree Lane – and in spite of ripping their roots and pouring vinegar – they are persistent. New shoots appear within days – right in the holes I leave.
Does my face show how I feel about the return of the thistles?
But what’s inside the wall is NOTHING compared to the labyrinth area outside the wall.
Thank goodness we had help today. Woodwynn had about 80-100 volunteers and ten of them were assigned to thistle duty! It was amazing how much progress was made!
Here are some photos:
