Weeds: Eat, Ignore Or Destroy?

Aug 3, 2015

KUNM Call In Show 8/6 8a:

*Editor's note: We regret that because of technical difficulties there is no audio archived for this show.


Weeds: Not the kind that you smoke, the kind that are sprouting up in every corner of your yard right now. Goat heads, yellow mustardy things, purslane, lambs' quarters. How can you tell the difference between a plant that will drop spiky demon seeds and a weedy-looking thing that makes pretty flowers? Or tastes good? And once you've identified the ones you want to get rid of, can you do you do it safely and permanently? 

We want to hear from you, email callinshow@kunm.org, post your comments online or call in live during the show.
