This is not a doctored photo! This is the problem with Russian Thistle. It THRIVES in the arid Sonoita Grasslands! Each and every single plant carries 250,000 seeds. And, you know why it is called Tumbleweed. Those suckers can rock and roll for miles. In the fall they spill their seed all along their merry tumble. Hence, my tumbleweed fence. I guess I have a fallback crop plant if I ever need one. The only problem will be finding a market for it. Any ideas?

  1. That's amazing. Emma's a little squirt, but still, that's one huge pile of tumbleweeds.
