I'll call this Goose
Grass, but more likely it has other names, and even more likely the name
Goose Grass belongs in the minds of many to some other plant.
Either way, it enjoys the cool, seems to relish a little frost, and it
has an intense and shallow root system that can only be dealt with when
ground is dry, but not too dry.
I of course cling to the theory
that during the short days with their interludes of intense cold, sogginess
and other frightfulness, garden beds need roots that at least appear to be
trying. This keeps the soil from sulking, enables it to maintain a
rapport with purpose, and gives a gardener his chance to think about
Dandelions or maybe a Snowdrop.
