Still no service from City of St. Louis Park. Stump is still there; garbage not being picked up; no finished compost delivered; the compost bin is overflowing.

I do not think it is the gardeners that are adding the buckthorn to the compost bin.

I’ve been doing a lot of cleanup: Cutting and pulling weeds. I have a new weed cutting tool. Unfortunately, it is not possible to get between the narrow rows: I need room to swing the tool.

After weed pulling and trimming. I routinely keep the culvert clear to help minimize flooding. A lot of vegetation grows there.

A new addition to the trash near the bins are chunks of asphalt. The asphalt is common in this community garden; it’s just below the soil in many places. I’ve encountered it during fence installation.

Does anyone have any ideas on what to do with asphalt we dig up?
