This is a dock plant - Rumex somethingorother.   Somethingorother is not part of its formal name - I just made that up.    There are a whole lot of Rumexes and I can't figure out which one it is.   Frankly I don't care.    I hate this plant.

It is a noxious weed.   In case you wondered.

It has roots to China.

It doesn't die.  Even when you kill it.   Again and again and again.   

They get huge - the size of rhubarb.

This one has made a home at the base of the steps to the studio.    I've killed it several times.  

After I took the pic, I pulled all the leaves off.   That won't kill it, but it'll slow it down.    Maybe I'll try boiling water.    Or vinegar.   Or boiling vinegar.
