How do you plant anything in heavy clay without tilling it? Our soil laughed at garden tools. If I swung a pick at it, I managed to chip a small piece off. If I managed to chip out a hole, water would sit in it for days. If we hadn't tilled we could never have planted anything.

We had a bobcat 'rip' through it, then used a rotary hoe to mix gypsum and manure through. We then covered it with mulch and let it sit for a year. Finally we started planting, but had to be careful of all the worms that had taken up residence. Years later, and we still have wonderful friable soil and a flourishing garden.

The milky substance inside the donkey tail spurge causes very bad blistering if opened. VERY HARMFUL!

Wow Diane! That is a terrible reaction!! How awful for him! As noted in the article, this plant can cause a rash and it varies in degree from person to person. Keeping kids and pets away from it is the right way to go!
