When it’s difficult to focus and get started on a post, sometimes it helps to dig. We’re talking about mud, not information, (because it’s information overload that causes a writing clot). So, we hand dug a mini-burdock weed that had invaded the garden. This took a good long while since the roots of even the small plants are deep, while a large wild burdock sends its branched roots halfway to China.
Bees love the flowers. An added benefit, especially for beekeepers.
This is one of my fav root vegetables; very common side-dish in Korea. I've never found burdock in Aus, though!
