The weeds are here - Time to brush hog

Finally, we have had rain.  It is hard to tell if there are any natives, but the weeds are sure loving it.   The dry weather kept them from growing until the rain from the last few weeks.  On our last walk we realized that the velvet leaf was tall enough that it would be shading out any baby prairie plants, and that the fox tail was about to go to seed.   We took the brush hog out and cut it down to about 8 inches.    We had to be really careful while driving - with the sand so fragile, there is a chance that we can bury or damage the seedlings when turning.   Hopefully we will all be okay, and they are still putting their little roots down.
