    Default Invasive Species That Can Overwinter Around The Farm

    Just got this link about an invasive species that is showing up more. I was quite surprised by it, but will be paying more attention so they don't get a
    foothold here. They sound tough to get rid of once started, and spread easily by traveling and hitch hiking on others. Easily overwinter under the soil, though they can hide in surprising places. Always something new to watch for.

    Oh dear! I'm terribly guilty of aiding this invasive species! Aside, how DID that guy do that whole video with a straight face?

    I have a friend that has those kinds of yards, that grow invasive species in all kinds of shapes and materials.
    Scary indeed, as one day those will just take completely over, never again any dirt to be seen.
