Velvetleaf has a very appropriate name. It’s leaves are velvety! They’re so big and velvety smooth that they can be used for toilet paper in an emergency.
Here’s a funny thing:
You Might Be a Farmer If…
Your dog rides in your truck more than your wife.
You convince your wife that an overnight, out-of-state trip for equipment parts is a vacation.
You have ever had to wash off in the backyard with a garden hose before your wife would let you in the house.
You’ve never thrown away a 5-gallon bucket.
You have used baling wire to attach a license plate.
You have used a chain saw to remodel your house.
You can remember the fertilizer rate, seed population, herbicide rate and yields on a farm you rented 10 years ago, but cannot recall your wife’s birthday.
You have fibbed to a mechanic about how often you greased a piece of equipment.
You have used a velvetleaf plant as toilet paper.
You have driven off the road while examining your neighbors crops.
I suppose if you don’t want to have to run back to the house, use Velvetleaf instead.
