It's gone rampant this year - never seen it so bad. Not a nice weed, can give you allergic contact dermatitis as I've found out to my cost. Got some Hydrocortisone cream from the Doc which has helped a very itchy patch on my arm.
The helicopter pilots' mantra: If it hasn't gone wrong then it's just about to...
Horses like the taste of it, I often pull up a couple of handfuls and feed it to my neighbouring ponies, they champ away with enthusiasm. It does seem to have thrived this year, as too has the bind weed, I am often (justifiably) accused of ignoring the garden since I took on the allotment, and it gets pretty wild and out of control quite easily.
Alcohol doesn't solve any problems, but then again neither does milk.
