Awhile back, Dan'l talked about the Kudzu--yet another disgusting Japanese import-- they have growing down South. Wasn't too long after that I saw a show about a woman who takes her herd of goats to various locations in her city sbecause goats LUV the Kudzu.
To my knowledge, NOTHING eats this stupid Japanese Knot Weed. In this first picture, I'm standing BELOW taking the shot. I'm about 5'6" tall and it towers above me.
The stem is like a hollow tube filled with sticky crap. In the fall they dry up, just like corn stalks. This stuff spreads like ...well, bad seeds and is difficult to kill. The root system goes so deep that even pesticides don't do the trick. And I should know, we sprayed it often enough. I even called the County Ag div to see if they could tell me how to get rid of it and the guy said they have the same problem with it growing along the highways. Yeah, but at least they don't have it in their yards!
