OT: Tumbleweeds

From: Sharon McAllister <73372.1745@compuserve.com>

From the tumbleweed capitol of the world, I must report:   they're
relatively easy to control without resorting to chemical means.  [And we
garden on a large scale with very limited time.]

Tumbleweeds can be easily pulled, bare-handed, until they develop stickers.

If they get past infancy, needle-nosed pliers come in handy -- just grasp
the tap root and tug.

The secret is not letting them go to seed -- whether they're only two feet
tall or six-foot monsters.  

Unless, of course, you want to explore the possibilities of hybridizing
tumbleweeds instead of iris.....
