Blair’s post – “Weeds” – seems especially fitting after reading this article by Tom Christopher for The New York Times Magazine:
Can Weeds Help Solve the Climate Crisis?
From the article:
There are countless definitions of weeds, ranging from the hardheaded one necessarily observed by farmers, that a weed is any plant that interferes with profit, to the aesthetic (a popular gardener’s definition of a weed is “a plant out of place”), to Ralph Waldo Emerson’s sanctimonious assertion that a weed is “a plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.”
