REVENGE OF THE POLK SALAD



As I was mowing the grass this evening, I came across ANOTHER Polk Salad plant next to the house. And, yes, I know my Polk Salad plants. This one is still a baby, and at this point, quite manageable. But, I am sad to report, I will probably be cutting him down in the near future. Polk Salad is useless to me. It just keeps growing and growing and does nothing else. Apparently it's edible, but I don't see myself frying it up and serving it to the girls for dinner. If it had pretty flowers, I would consider keeping it around. But since I can only fit so many plant corpses under the deck, this wee one will have to go.

Are you SURE it's the same thing? Is that what they look like when they are babies....you're right though; get it while it's young!!

I will NOT have ugly plants in the spot where I plan on planting my rose garden!!!
