I hate ragweed season. I tried to dig out our ragweed garden before it hit, but I only got maybe halfway through it. It’s all along our fence line on one side.

Of course, we also seem to be growing some rather more interesting nasty plants. There’s, of course, the lovely thistles. My favorite, however, is knowing that we’re growing nightshade. You know, deadly nightshade? The stuff you can make into some kind of poison?

Hey, maybe we can find some kind of market for poisonous and annoying plants to support the adoption. 😛 At least it would give me more motivation to dig them all up!

    our neighbor started growing something vicious in his garden that was right next to our driveway. He was going under foreclosure, so he never bothered to get rid of it. It was so nasty – i’d never seen anything like it. we would attempt to hack it to bits and throw it over his driveway as some kind of reminder to cut the darn thing down 🙂
