On 6/20/09 Jim, Wynne and Ellen accompanied Tim D’Amato (Larimer County Land Steward Manager) and Dr. Phil Westra (CSU, Department of Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management) to the Haystack Weed Demonstration area. Read previous blog post for more details. The Canada thistle (CT) plants were very small due to our cool spring. But CT seemed to be visible only in the unsprayed areas so Tim and Phil were pleased with the early results. A return site visit is planned for August 12 to allow the CT to grow larger.
