ok so here's another fear-inducing plant for the nativists to hate..hemlock!! hemlock has been popping up on the hillsides in spring forever and now it's an evil weed!! hahha
|serpent slithers Saturday|
naturally I love it because it smells so good and is harmless to touch, just don't eat it..but according to the News-Press and Bruce Reed, hemlock is verrrry dangerous..why, just looking at it can kill some folks!
he claims there is "anecdotal evidence" that some kids have died from ingesting hemlock...total bullshit..and he says the best way to get rid of the weed is with herbicides!! POISON!! he suggested the same cure for Cape Ivy that grows near the creeks around town...
|hemlock...sons of the evil ones|
"Jesus told them another parable : "The Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared."
"Then He left the crowd and went into the house. His disciples came to Him and said, 'Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.'"
"He answered, 'The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of The Kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the devil..

here's a California native plant that can kill ya!!
California Buckeye (Aesculus Californica)
now the best way to control weed overgrowth is to get some goats roaming around the hills... they like rhubarb, oleander and other plants that are supposedly deadly....I'd love to see goats in the hills..they could control the weeds and serve as lunch for a coyote!!
the point being there's no reason to panic if you see hemlock on the hillsides..unless you're Socrates.....
