Johnson grass - tamed?

Thanks to all who came out and pulled, pulled and pulled the Johnson grass this past Saturday! We made great headway on the JG growing at the corner of Sycamore and Cherrywood, beginning to open up a space for the newly planned butterfly garden (to be installed this fall).

We didn't get it all, of course; that task is herculean in scope. But, the wet soil made it eas(ier) to pull it out and may help keep it at bay for longer. Just weakening a strong force, you know? This week's planned mowing by the city should help even more.

Here are some photos of the job:
