Ask Mr. Answer Person: Carole wants to know about the "interesting plants" on the new site for soccer and sledding near Will Baker Park.

Carole writes: Interesting plants growing on the land near Will Baker Park that reportedly will be soccer fields in the future. Looks like the same plants on the future sledding hill. What's up?   

Mr. Answer Person says:  The interesting plants are weeds (button weeds). But as of yesterday, they aren't so interesting since most of them were mowed down. The soccer field portion of that complex has been seeded with grass, surrounded by a temporary mini dike to prevent erosion. It will likely be reseeded this fall, along with the remaining areas. It has not been a great year for seeding grass. Thank you to Scott Ihde from Decorah Parks Maintenance for the information.
