Another gratifying two hours this morning clearing brush off the back slope and opening up the view of the land. I uncovered another sunflower in the tangled grass.
The compression dripper on the jasmine was generating almost no water. I added soil amendment and Preen mulch and watered heavily. To my relief, Jasmine responded almost immediately.
This Saturday is a date for hazardous waste collection at the dump five miles up the road. I cleaned out of lot of pesticides and insecticides that I had no idea the use. In the process I found enough grass seed and weed control to last for the foreseeable future. Interestingly, I found a bottle of wet water that is meant to help with water absorption in compacted soils. I will try it on the segment of the ice plant border that is not as thriving.
I trimmed back the sun-generous gold lantana that was spilling everywhere. Deadheading the geraniums is part of the daily rounds now.
