WEEDS – PART 2

Blair’s post - “Weeds” - seems especially fitting after reading this article by Tom Christopher for The New York Times Magazine:

Can Weeds Help Solve the Climate Crisis?

From the article:

There are countless definitions of weeds, ranging from the hardheaded one necessarily observed by farmers, that a weed is any plant that interferes with profit, to the aesthetic (a popular gardener’s definition of a weed is “a plant out of place”), to Ralph Waldo Emerson’s sanctimonious assertion that a weed is “a plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.”
