Last Week in the Cemetery (Week of April 24)
Posted July 12, 2023 by M.S. Coyne
It was rather pleasant in the cemetery and in this interim between mowing. That meant it was time to
do some weeding and other activities.
The Forsythia (Forsythia spp.) bush at the corner of Section D wanted trimming, weeding, mulching, and Groundhog (Marmota monax) removal.
The Nursery in the Back of Section E was being overrun by Garlic Mustard an invasive, destructive, but edible member of the Brassica family. Newly disturbed sites are quickly colonized and the plants must be removed before they go to seed.
There were some prettier flowers. Butterweed is also aggressive, but it is a native plant.
Remember, if you or your group would like to contribute a few hours of service maintaining African Cemetery No. 2 in 2023, please contact Mark Coyne at email@example.com to plan a visit.
