The Enemy

Bindweed roots.  Found them in a layer of soil on top of a piece of landscape fabric that was protecting the strawberries and asparagus, and I pulled them out one by one.  You know what they remind me of?  Pictures of parasitic worms, and they are just as nasty.  This small pile was inhabiting a 2 square foot plot of earth - how many thousands of roots are still out there?

Makes me long for Roundup.
