Burned the garlic mustard

Today, I spent about 1 hour collecting more garlic mustard from around the property. ... and then (because it was during an interlude between the rains) burned over one wheelbarrow-full of the stuff. The smoke and steam that came off of it was amazing, and I worked hard to burn the rest of the stuff. Luckily, there was enough wood collected from the fall and winter to feed the multiple fist-fulls of garlic mustard.

And then... after about one hour of burning, I scattered the wood, and allowed the ashes the burn down (an oncoming storm front also helped keep the embers down).
