  1. Is that called milk weed, too? Just curious…I know milk weed turns cows milk sour, my grandma told me…I know it was a yellow wild plant of some kind….It is very pretty to look at….What are nematodes? I’ll have to look that word up..:)

      • Gee if you ever see some milk weed will you take a photo for me. I’d love to see what grandma was talking about….They lived on a farm and sure got upset with the thought of milk weed in the pasture, I remember that!
