Yep, it is about six feet tall. I must contact NASA and let them know that I may have a very inexpensive way to reach the moon. It could save them millions if not billions of dollars. It seems to be growing a couple of feet a day. All they have to do is climb up the stem. . . wait a minute, maybe that wouldn't be too wise. First, it would be a long, long wait for it to grow as high as the moon. I just remembered the old story of Jack and the Bean Stalk. Jack would have to be really tough to climb this stalk, see the thorns?
An enlarged and trimmed view showing just the lower portion of the stalk. Not too inviting to a climber, is it?
I think that I will let it grow a couple of more days and see if it will get any taller. Now, you all be careful when reaching for a tall weed to pull out of your yard, because I want you
all to have a great day, you hear?
