“Good fences make good neighbors”…

This is no joke-I let Giant ragweed-Ambrosia trifida-grow in tim’s weed patch 1.0 to serve as a fence,if you will,to buffer my neighbor’s property.I had to do something-they took it down!Every one knows that Hayfever Weed causes the nasty seasonal allergies a lot of us try to cope with.Giant ragweed is a summer annual growing 3′-12′ tall in the usual places-disturbed areas,fence rows,margins of woodland areas/fields,my garden.It is native to N.A. and can be found in Canada and Mexico.On the plus side-wildlife like the oil rich seeds.Oh by the way-I get along fine with the neighbors!
