In the photo at right you can see the little T-post enclosures we made. Inside them are an assortment of trees, including Nanking cherries, elderberries, lilacs, cotton-less cottonwoods, western red cedar, and a couple others I've forgotten. All the plants looked nice and healthy. You can also see my “lawn” there – sod laid down late last fall. The tracks you see running directly away from the camera were made by my ATV when I was spraying. We cannot figure out why these tracks appear in our back yard but not in the front yard. The shriveled-up plants are the remains of dandelions killed (or seriously dinged) by the spray. Obviously we have a lot of work to do on this. Our front yard, by contrast, is quite lush with beautiful dark green grass. Same sod, laid at the same time. Weird!
