Ah, here that is called "poison parsnip". VERY nasty, VERY invasive. Looks almost like QAL but yellow flowers instead of white.

ETA - OH WAIT! Your cow parsnip has WHITE flowers! They are both members of the flowering plant family Apiaceae as is QAL.
So.... they are slightly different?

Your poison parsnip and my pushki?

Do they burn differently or some such?

Here some people EAT it, no joke... like celery, just keep your lips back and wear gloves.

Seems from the description that they burn the same.

I sure wouldn't want to eat it though maybe like rhubarb there are parts you can eat and parts you can't?
Well... it does still burn you....

Which is why you need to keep your lips back and wear gloves. :rolleyes: The inside of your mouth hopefully won't see light, and your esophagus definitely won't.

I knew my chickens were molting, but this is just too much! My poor birds!

So much chicken dander! ;)

Some whatchamahicky is going on with the chemistry of my pond.

Oddest thing, a great big bundle of not right.

First my chickens started molting, and now this funky pond issue.

I think it must be something in the air... luckily it is raining now. I am thinking the rain will wash away the uck. :old
