Description

Fennel is all over the place here in the Baylands. In a couple of places they have made attempts on control by digging but that takes a lot of human energy. For the most part I am certain that it is humans that spread the seeds by grabbing a hand-full to smell the sweet fragrance and then toss the seeds away when we are finished thus becoming the local distributor. The plants are taking advantage of us without out our knowing it.
