It's easy to write off a piece of road verge as weed infested and up to the council to look after.
Me, though, I see it as valuable realestate and a potential farmable area. The weeds on it can tell us so much about the soil conditions that they are no longer weeds, but bioindicators and soil testing kits.
Have a watch and see what I mean.
