Chance and I were up before the sun, as daylight approached it became more foggy..until it was pretty soupy. We found this spot to watch the sun finally break through the fog.
The Spotted Knapweed or Centaurea maculosa is in fine form. I have watched this noxious weed/wildflower take over our ditches one by one. I read recently that it might be an allelopathic plant..which means that it chemically changes the soil to discourage other plants from growing. Goats, they are the answer.. they will eat anything, I told Far Guy that if I had a few goats I could get a job as a Natural Spotted Knapweed Eradicator…Chance could herd something besides a ball:)
