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.
