Ok folks.
A little collection of garden related stories that caught my interest this week.
Some funny, some serious, but most should be of interest to gardeners.

Weeds fight back against Roundup

Wild Russian strawberries join 500,000 plants in Norways seed vault.

Ethiopia offering 7.5 million acres of fertile land to allow countries export food for their own populations.

Chickens get their revenge on eagles.
Contain picture that some may find disturbing.

I'll try this once a week for a few weeks, and see how it works out.
Leave a comment below if you found any of them interesting. Smile

The land-grab article should be compulsory reading, to remind us that human greed knows no bounds. Access to food and water will be the trigger for conflict and wars around the world this century.
