March 2016 Weld and Woad

Weld plant, March 2016

Weld plant, March 2016

This Weld plant popped up nearby so I put the bricks around it – my universal marker for this-is-not-really-a-weed-dont-pull-or-stomp-on.  With any luck this one will have the tenacity to survive the current drought conditions.

Woad in yard, March 2016

This is the surviving Woad plant from last year.

I had this project idea to see how the Woad would do in a planter vs yard.  It started out well enough then one night something made its way to the porch  ate most of the Woad in a pot – but not the yard.  I guess the next few test plants will be wrapped in hardware cloth.

And the Weld. These are from last years Weld plants. Just starting to come up.


Weld seedlings just coming up.


Weld a few weeks later.


Weld under hardware cloth to discourage local beasties from rolling in it.
