Woad is me

Today is the first day of what will hopefully not become an annual event: The Weber County, Utah "Bag O' Woad" Program. According to this report from KSL TV, Weber County is offering $10 per bag of the plant known as dyer's woad (Isatis tinctoria). You have to be between the ages of 6 and 16 to pick up a bag to fill, and I'm sure the bags will go fast...what youngster would want to miss out on such a fulfilling experience as pulling weeds? :-) The program was also the subject of an entry in the ISW last spring.
