Re: Amer. Gardener article/Wild Greens

I couldn't agree more, Marge.  What I can't understand is why, when I have 
for years, determinedly pulled garlic mustrad out by the bushel as soon as it 
appeared in the spring, before it bloomed, I keep getting masses of it.  I guess 
the seed must live in the soil for years.  If it were just brought in by 
birds, there couldn't possibly be so much of it.  Birds bring in lots of the 
Oriental bittersweet, and I find that seeded just about everywhere, but not in the 
msses that  garlic mustard makes.
