    Yeah at least I haven't gotten any death threats like I did last year. At least not yet.

    ZING! I couldn't get here yesterday for all the festivities. lol Well done Oz-man! And thanks to Barry for all his help. With such a wicked sense of humor, he added just the right "authority" to snag at least some people! All I did was photoshop some dirt into looking a little bugg-ish.

    hahaha! Maybe next year you can get Jan Schlauer to help out.

    But shame on you folks who didn't get mad about the plants being removed and sold. Tsk tsk!

    Well thanks for ruining my plans for next year.


    When I posted thething about selling the plants, Ithought there would be outrage, because we dug up a very rare plant and were selling them. Nobody cared about that at all, they just wanted to have one.

    Wow, I was wondering why this thread was growing so much...

    I read it the first day and wasn't impressed. So I never checked back until now.

    Anyway, It looks like some biennial plant, rossete form the first year (the picture would be first year growth), climbing the second year. Possibly a mullein.

    Ozzy, that's when I smelled a rat. It didn't seem right that you were aiding and abetting rather than leading the lynching party and supplying all the rope. I did get sucked in at first by the new species discovery. But Barry and company stripping a CP site of a newly discovered species and you helping. Add in your penchant for April Fool's Day pranks, nope, I ain't gonna buy it. If this had been your first prank and not your third though, I'd have probably taken it hook, line and stinker

    I think the plant looks like an immature "nettle", as we called them in Ohio. They get about three feet high and have a ferocious sting.
    Is anyone familiar with that plant?
