Tried to move the Greenometer today.
Our efforts to go 5 meters were thwarted by a conniving and spiky branched plant whose name remains a mystery to this garden savvy blogger.
The last statement is a clear show of why a sarcasm font is desperately needed for today’s day and times. But I digress, Myself and Darryl Stewart soldiered out to the garden with dreams of grandeur and after about an hour of hacking away roots realized why we both stunk at gym class growing up. Between all the complaining and failed gardening we realized that these plants have taken over the Northern half of the garden and unless we can learn their Achilles heel (And I should note here that Darryl already vetoed my proposal for a napalm style fire cleanse. ) our endeavour is doomed.
You people must help us! First those things are spiky and there’s no way I’m going out to tango with them until we get more money. Second, I need to know the name of those plants! Most of the garden nerds in our building are confounded! Let me know in the comments what you think it is!
Thanks again for all your support!
IBEX Payroll extends our profound respect and immeasurable gratitude to all the ancestors and keepers of the land on whose traditional territories our work takes place. We acknowledge that we are on Treaty 1 territory, the traditional gathering place of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene people and the traditional homeland of the Métis people. This land is sacred, historical, and significant.
Every time we acknowledge this truth, we have an invitation and an opportunity to reflect on the wrongs of the past, what we do in the present, and what we can do to continually honour the people whose lands and water we benefit from today.
This statement only acts as a first step in honouring the land we reside on and its peoples, and must be paired with education, understanding and informed action.
I believe it is a Yew.
