CULT: nutgrass control

Greetings, everyone.
The Central Arkansas Iris Society's State Capitol display beds have been
infested with nutgrass so long every weeding seems merely to spread the
stuff around. Saturday while a group of us tried in vain to collect root
fragments, one former Depression child popped a nutgrass "nut" in her mouth
and ate it. This lady said she's eaten nutgrass nuts all her life, as did
everyone in the farming community where she grew up. Some ate the nuts
"raw," some dried them for winter or boiled them like peanuts, and some
people prepared the greens as a fried salad.

Was she handing us a line? Is it really OK to eat nutgrass?

I have a dream!

Little Rock ... still dry as a bone but at least the temp's coming down.
