We spent 3 hours pulling the plant. At the beginning we had put decided on a goal of 50 pounds. We were planning on registered our amount with the National Garlic Mustard Removal challenge.
Boy were we shocked to learn the next day that after our bags were weighed we had pulled a total of 287 pounds of Garlic Mustard. WOW.... what a successful day.
That night Mrs. Garcia made us pesto with Garlic mustard and we all tried it. It was pretty good.
During the day we learned about how long it takes for certain things to decompose in the woods. Did you know it can take up to 3 years for a banana peal to decompose?? That is why if you carry it in you should always carry it out.
