    CNN Article

    and wondered, are there species in Columbus that this method could be used for?

    I wonder if there’s anywhere local that’s serving Asian carp? I know they were trying to rebrand it to “Silverfish” – but that name conjures up images of those terrible bugs. Yeek.

    Purslane grows wild all around here. It’s one of my favorites.

    Those bastards are protected!!! They really need to be released to some kind of deer-style hunting program. Of course, then we’d have people killing geese in the parking lot of Whole Foods… which, come to think of it, might teach something to some folks.

    Kudzu is a plant I am considering planting at my little Licking county homestead. Seriously.

    It is a legume, as healthy as spinach to eat, all parts are edible, a great animal fodder, creates a tremendous compost biomass from crappy soil, and now can be found already in Ohio in a few places. I have an old(60’s) Organic Gardening magazine that has an interesting article about how awesome it is.

    Uh. I’d put that in a pot. On a stand. Where it could never touch ground. Or, plan on eating about 3′ a day of that sucker, because that’s about how much the kudzu in my yard in NC seemed to grow.

    As someone who grew up w/ it in FL, you might want to reconsider.

    I thought Asian Carp didn’t have too much culinary value because it was so bony. At least that’s what I’ve heard.

    You know, considering that 95% of what we eat from a fast food joint is supremely processed, I’m sure no one would care they were getting Filet ‘O Silverfish

    Unless it was that OTHER Silverfish. eww.

    I don’t know if it would survive a cold winter in Ohio, but yeah… where my parents live in Alabama is overrun with the stuff.

    Not an uncommon sight:

    We have chicken meat processed into drumettes, right? Why is there no mechanically-separated carp meat formed into little fish-shaped patties? Fried, of course, with corndog breading, and tartar sauce on the side.

    Kudzu grows so fast that NASCAR was looking in to using it as an alternative fuel for their cars.

    Its incredible to drive through the south and see it literally blanketing both sides of the road.

    Too Late! Bwu hu hu hu hu. (That was an evil cackle)

    Was only 16 counties in 2010. Not my doing I swear. I dont need to grow it, just get a fork and a bottle of ranch and stand still in Grandview for a spell.
