New Camas planting, yesterday.

We have finally gotten enough rain that planting can start.  With a year to break down, the dead annual grass from last year is very easy to rake up, exposing fresh dirt, then the seeds are scattered over the surface and I rake them in.  Though I planted a little grass seed in the areas I planted last fall, most of the grass seed I purchased last fall will be planted in the next few weeks.  I also have the rest of the seed I collected this year, and last year's significant leftovers. As I was out mapping the area, I spotted this young Canadian goldenrod who must have sprouted just this year.
