The garden has been very productive this summer and so have the weeds. We have a giant weed growing between the potager and the Cottage.
It is a pokeberry bush.
Once upon a time historic documents were written with pokeberry ink made from the poisonous berries. Pokeberry ink is fades over time so some documents have actually been lost.
The entire plant is poison to eat. Since it is not poison to touch Charlie hacked it down.
With this bush cut down the area under the trees is becoming a neater spot.
I hope it’s the start of a trend.
Are your weeds under control?
