Spring Stewardship!!

This tidy, typical Berwyn, Illinois, bungalow was planted by us in 2004. The activities at this location in mid-March 2009 show the steps involved in a Spring stewardship. A moderate garden like this would take three helpers about half an hour to complete and cost about $50.

Summer Stewardship!!

Art and Linda's Wildflowers donated this wildflower garden to the Seguin Home for Retarded Citizens in Cicero, Illinois in the Summer of 2004. We weeded and cared for it regularly. However, certain species became aggressive and started to crowd out everything else. We removed most of these rambunctious plants and replaced them with their more well-behaved brothers and sisters.

Teasel Farm!!!!

Today is Harvest Day for teasel, Dipsacus fullonum -- a nasty invasive, agressive and noxious biennial weed. For good measure, lets mix in some Queen Anne's Lace, Daucus carota, and Tall Goldenrod, Solidago altissima.

Queen Anne's Lace was the plant from which domestic carrots were developed. Tall goldenrod can spread into a large colony through its rhizomes.
