Alien Life Form

Invasion of the green tentacled gut suckers! Run for your lives! The rational among you will probably identify the greenery as Bromus tectorum, cheatgrass, something just as scary as the green tentacled gut sucker. I found this monster hiding in a part of the Gardens that had no additional water. It was living in the mulch and its superhuman roots had grown through the brand new landscape cloth. Is there no stopping it? Yes. But we must be diligent. Pull it when you can. Spray it in the fall and most of all. Do not give up. It is either us or them. And I prefer it to be us.
