We were working on weed controle on the pastures lately.
It's been too dry for the grass to grow, but the weeds are fine! GRRRRRR!
I don't care about weeds that have nice flowers, but the ones that have just millions of seeds for reproduction purpose are so USELESS!
USELESS like flees! Who needs them?!
AND if the weed is toxic, it's even worse.
We have two plants growing, which look very similar from the distance.
One is called
"Johanniskraut", called "Amber" or "Goat Weed" i think,
(Hypericum perforatum) - which is a great medicinal plant AND
which I call "the good guy",
the other one is called
"Jakobskreuzkraut" or Jakobs-Greiskraut in german, "Common Ragweed" in english (Senecio jacobaea),
which I call "the bad guy".
It's toxic and can kill a horse or other animal.
So Hasi has been out the last two days checking our fields and found a few plants.
The only really effective way to get rid of them is digging them out.
Same with Rumex (Ampfer) by the way, at least if you don't want to use chemical weed killers.
Here two photos that show the plant and it's blooms..

Our "new" second hand furniture is still sitting in the garage/shop, waiting to be cleaned, except for one piece.
It's a serving trolly that we fell in love with the moment we saw it.
Isn't it gorgeaus?!
Have a great Friday everyone!
