Suggested New Thread for MB Shop: This Bush Pisses me off

I'm having a difficult time with a shrub. If I inspect it real close, it starts to spin. I tried to get rid of it on Nov 2, but it just grew back into something even uglier.


Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

RE: Suggested New Thread for MB Shop: My Bush Pisses me off

So my question is, how can I learn to live with this bush, and keep it from taking over everything?

If you cut down the surrounding understory, the bush will be left unprotected. Then, it will either whither away or become aggressively invasive. Sadly, I suspect the latter.

Get pictures of it copulating with the rice plant growing in the patty at the trunk, then show them to the rest of its supporting plant life constituents. Nothing like a cross plant race sex scandal to get the local grasses and other flora to help you isolate and exterminate that bush. Jim

I think you just need to submit, recognize that most people like the bush, and try again in 4 years to plant a different type of bush from New York by way of Arkansas.

I think I'd rather eat some rice than cultivate that bush... Come to think of it, I might just have to go without for a while... [xx(]
