Brian's Bits

No such thing…

…as a weed?  
The gospel according to WIKIthing:-
Taxonomically, the term "weed" has no botanical significance, because a plant that is a weed in one context is not a weed when growing in a situation where it is in fact wanted, and where one species of plant is a valuable crop plant, another species in the same genus might be a serious weed, such as a wild  bramble growing among cultivated Loganberries. "
SO?  This here HUGE Garlic is not a weed, despite growing in a bed where none was/were (tak yer pick) planted last year.
I ought to own up that not all were of this size though, only the "Elephant" variety.
It came to light when I saw a single stalk sticking up amidst the broad beans.  A slow tug, instead of removing the bulb, removed the centre "hard-neck" stalk; hence the hole up the middle.
