NOTE: @Patriciaallison and others. I stand corrected. I have always heard it called Queen Anne's lace. What I get for listening to old time farmers. It is very similar but a short plant. This faster growing tall stuff is called Deadly hemlock
I did wonder about that and almost mentioned it the other day. Hemlock and Queen Anne's Lace do indeed look very similar. I've never had hemlock here to my knowledge but had Queen Anne's Lace and while visiting a friend years ago, he pointed out some hemlock he had on his property and I was really surprised by the similarity.
Good info on the lice etc. I got so busy talking about the crop I forgot about the other issues.
It is thundering here like crazy. I left the barn door open and all the animals have voluntarily retreated to it until the storm is over. We need more rain like a hole in the head at the moment. Fortunately I got my mowing done while the ground was relatively dry on Saturday, as if I hadn't, I doubt there would be opportunity this week based on the forecast and it would have looked like a jungle by the time it finally dried out otherwise.
