Lets all get out and pull some Himalayan Balsam

Lets all get out and pull some Himalayan Balsam

Now is the time of the year, when our services are needed on the river bank. Its this time of the year when we anglers need to get out on the river bank and pull up the horrid invasive weed Himalayan Balsam. You must not cut the weed, it needs to be pulled up with its roots then cast aside to die. I make this please to all readers, please give up a few hours this weekend and get out and pull some balsam. Don't say you don't have time, make time. The only way we will get rid of this invasive weed is by pulling it from the earth. If I can get out on the river bank at 75 with my health problems so can everyone else. For the past couple of weeks I've given 2 to 3 hours of my time each day to this work. Over the past few years I have been up rooting this horrid weed, I now have long stretches of river bank without Himalayan Balsam. Please get out for a few hours and pull some balsam
