I've been invaded

This is a topic that hits very close to home for me, literally. I have been battling some non-native invasive plants on my land since the beginning. Battling and losing, but battling non-the-less. The two biggest threats in my yard are privet and japanese honeysuckle. What's maddening is that a lot of garden retailers still sell this stuff. If you see an invasive being sold in a garden center, please notify a manager about it's invasive properties. As an added bonus, it may be illegal for them to sell it.

If you have any invasive on your property, and I almost guarantee you do, please take steps to eliminate it. You'll be glad you did.
