Garlic Mustard Update — time to bag it up

From LCT Trustee and invasive species guru Rick Findlay:

Many thanks to all who have been helping our effort to control Garlic Mustard on conservation lands and throughout town. Plants are now setting seed and should be bagged after pulling. I have some blue bags specifically for this purpose that can eventually be dropped off at the transfer station. Anyone needing some can contact me.

I noticed something important with my work this year. I started early and thought that I had successfully cleared several areas only to discover, three weeks later, that there was a new crop up. They were small plants but setting seed, so it is important to go back and recheck areas that you have done.

Many thanks – Rick
