    Giant hogweed was an inspiration for, and was immortalized in pop culture by, Genesis. If Stompin' Tom never did get around to wild parsnip in 'is time, and I don't know as 'e ever did, I'm guessing it's out of luck.

    They just found some Wild Parsnip in Waterdown, on the path along Boers Creek. The City of Hamilton doesn't have a plan to sort it out...

    What else is new...?
