Gigantes




Couple of months ago, I tossed some sunflower seeds into the corner of my front yard. I had no idea how big these Mexican sunflowers could get or how hard it would be to get rid of them.

Those things'll turn on you, man. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Quinn's right. I scattered a few seeds on my property a few years back, and got a few sunflowers the first year. They were beautiful and BIG. I left them stand after the flowers dried and the plant died. The next year I had a forest of them, that threatened to overwhelm a pretty significant corner of my acreage. I spent the next few years pulling the plants before they got so big they cut the light to the understory.

Haha! I hope they grow up mean. I may even stick pins in them like I used to do to my marijuana plants. I put those mean fuckers right where the worst mushrooms have been coming up. We'll see what happens.

One of the things I never quite got was how real the idea of nuclear war and extinction was to my son's generation.
