Spraying Dioxin (Agent Orange) is somehow better
than the plant being irradicated or controlled?
Me thinks not, but that's just me. I'd much rather mow it than subject me and mine to that stuff. In S/E Asia 40+ years ago I didn't have a choice of being exposed....but we all do now
As for the honey (taste), well I leave it all for my bees as it flowers in the Fall in N/W Wisconsin even after the Goldenrod.
