Yes you read that correctly. Weedstalk. Not beanstalk. We're creating new fairy tales around the Tramontana house. This giant WEED was growing on the side of our house - behind a bush (which is why we didn't see it sooner) and it was in the neighborhood of 10-15 feet tall. The root, if you can see it, was maybe 2 - 3 feet long and had to be 12 inches around. I asked Sam if he was SURE it wasn't a tree of some kind and he and the neighbor definitely confirmed - it was a weed! Have you ever seen such a gigantic weed in your life? Amazing! When Sam broke the stem, it was full of this foamy looking stuff. Anyone know what kind of weed it was? Just curious since I had no idea a weed could/would even grow so high - it's not like we use miracle grow or anything and frankly most of our flowering bushes didn't even produce flowers this year (you know, my green thumb and all!) I can't get simple azaleas to bloom, but I get a 15 foot weed. Nice.
