Polk Salad Annie

gator got your granny...chomp..chomp..chomp

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 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

dickweed Bruce Reed works as a gardener for the Botanic Gardens and works for Wendy writing gibberish about plants: native vs non-native....and oh how he demonizes non-natives because they always seem to pick on native other words, non-native plants are bullies!!! and Bruce Reed was raised on an organic farm in the Lompoc valley, and received his B.A. at Westmont College-WESTMONT??? he's a fucking Christian! 

Parable of the Weeds

"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..

thistle seeds ready to take flight as Nature intends

the weeds are the sons of the evil ones.....of course it's all nonsense and a particular psychosis that these folks suffer from...luckily they can't kill all the species they hate....many plants have properties to protect them, especially the bully plants like thistle..bull thistle is something to admire but not touch...and hemlock, or poison hemlock has allegedly killed only two people that I'm aware of..Socrates and some chick in Washington...most people who are out hiking know what to chew on and what not to chew you wouldn't eat thistles would you.... no you wouldn' it's best to eat only what you know like the greens from a grocery store...or iffn you're walking down the river and spot some polk salad, jes pick yourself a mess of bom bom...salad....

here's a California native plant that can kill ya!!

California Buckeye (Aesculus Californica)

This deciduous shrub produces white or pink flowers with long stamens that extend past the petals of the flower. This shrub also yields a fruit that looks like leathery capsules, each containing 1 to 3 large brown seeds. The Glycoside esculin and saponin aescin contained in the California buckeye are highly toxic and can be fatal if eaten. The symptoms of ingesting this plant include muscular weakness, paralysis, dialated pupils, vomiting, diarrhea, depression and stupor.
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.....
