|*roots - common milkweed*|
|*July -first strike*|
I dug down as deep as I could with the fork, loosened the soil, then extracted what I could. These things were everywhere. It wasn't uncommon to pull laterals snaking way out into the lawn. As for the taps, well, I got maybe 12-14" but after that they snapped off, leaving the rest down to China.
I want to plant in those 2 ring arcs - tomatoes in one, perhaps asters in the other. But I'm leery. I guess I'll just have to see what springs up next year. Dang it. And to think I brought this on myself thinking common milkweed was a good forage plant for the bees. Live and learn...
At least I can warn you guys!
