Not so mellow about this yellow: Peninsula petition urges mandatory control of scotch broom–PDN

Funny, I was just thinking this same thing as I drove along the highway seeing the fields of yellow this last week. It’s really out of control.

If scotch broom, the invasive weed, is not curtailed, it will spread into the equivalent of an agricultural apocalypse, according to a Kala Point man who has started an online petition for statewide mandatory control of the weed.  “Scotch broom’s growth has exploded in Washington,” said David Tonkin, a retired technology worker. “If we don’t control it, in five or 10 years, it will choke out all the other vegetation,” he said.
