Wetlands Skunk Cabbage
My wife and I bought a house here in Shrub Oak , Ny. last year. Also known as Yorktown, Mohegan Lake. Westchester County, Zone 6.
Now we want to plant our first vegetable or herb garden.
Thing is : we border a wetland , right in our backyard.
Any idea of how to get rid of " Skunk Cabbage," or what to do with it.
Most of our backyard doesn't have that soggy flood plain feeling .
Have to figure out what amount of sun we get. Seems like " full sun " at the moment, but the trees haven't got their leaves yet. We have about an acre.
What about Blueberries ?
Any vegetables , berries, herbs that also look pretty as they grow ?
Well, those are my first questions , thoughts. I'm a fan of using forums as much as possible to get information. For instance, all the minor reconstruction I've been doing on our little fixer-up.
Thanks for any help in getting us started,
