It’s that time of year again, time to pick garlic mustard. Keep in mind, if you are out and about on the trails, pick garlic mustard. Whether picked to add to the pantry or the garbage container, please pick what you can. Garlic mustard, a nuisance weed which has proliferated in this area is the only plant legal to pick in public parks. Garlic mustard grows so fast and thick that it reduces the native plant populations, especially wildflowers.
