While we're encouraging milkweed, we should try to discourage the use of Roundup (a USA herbicide product) whenever possible.

We had record cold and snowfall too. They just started tapping maples around here about a week ago. The "saps" I referred to were the neighborhood joggers.

Roundup is banned in Ontario (farmers can buy it, as can golf courses). It kept under lock and key at the garden centres. Our milkweed has purplish-white flowers and grows everywhere.
