Opportunistic Plants

Amaranthus retroflexus

We used the hydraulic trailer to load hogs to take to the butcher today.  There is a flat piece of metal on each side of the trailer that collects manure.  I was amazed to see plants growing in the shallow manure.  And not just any plants, but the plants I wrote about yesterday: Amaranthus retroflexus and Chenopodium album.

I love living here.
