Spear Weed

One of the most frustrating weeds we have is something the locals call "spear weed." It does in fact look like a tiny little spear or arrow. And it acts just like one too. It goes through clothes, even thick jeans, easily but it's hard to get it out.


  1. Not just rural. We had it in Houston when I was a kid. (They probably still have it.) We'd pull them out of the stalk, lick em', and throw 'em at each other. (Sorry, parents. Hope I'm not getting something started with your kids, but it's mostly harmless fun.)

    1. Thanks John. This is interesting. I'd be afraid I'd swallow them though. Thanks for reading.
