Feed me Seymour…

I’m thinking that something like this might be the end result of the use of glyphosate, a weedkiller that goes by the name of Roundup.  It must be mentioned that Roundup was originally manufactured by the corporation I insist on ripping on and that would be Monsanto.  What’s happening is that weeds are becoming resistant to Roundup, sort of like the hearty cockroach.  Options are hand pulling (not likely if there is substantial acreage), plowing them under or yes you guessed it stronger chemicals.  The NY Times recently polled a group of individuals with such diverse opinions as “Actually the surprise would have been if these weeds didn’t show up – the only thing in doubt was the timing.”  Michael Pollan to “Glyphosate is the world’s greatest herbicide.”  Stephen Powles
