    Oh my. My list of hated weeds is huge. Star-of-Bethlehem, crabgrass, dallisgrass, ivy, henbit, chickweed, purslane, oxalis, dandelion, elm trees, milkweed, clover, violets, wild asters, privet, wild strawberry, blackberry and a host of other weeds I have to contend with. Weeds = loss of time spent pulling, spraying and digging when my time would be better spent in the gardens. Some weeds can be very pretty out in a field, but can choke out your desired plants in a garden. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    TUMBLEWEED!!! Out here in Nevada, it is everywhere!! It has extremely sharp thorns, so it is hard to pick, even with gloves. Spreads everywhere too, [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    out here in Calif. we have what we call "fox tails". Some kind of wild grass. Walk through a field of it and you'll spend the next hour picking them out of your socks. I think the only way to eradicate it is to burn the field, something you really don't want to be doing in southern calif.

    I don't think we need to worry about Elm anymore, PAK. Dutch Elm disease seems to have done a nice little number on them.

    Also, I'd like to add Tree of Heaven (So named because when you cut into it it stinks to high heaven) and, in certain situations, D. capensis. At least the latter can be unloaded onto unsuspecting newbie CPers [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
