    Found this article with some interesting plants that can kill you if you eat them.

    What surprises me is how many people grow poisonous plants in their yard. The seeds are usually toxic. Magnolia seeds and sago palm seeds are both toxic yet often used in landscaping.

    It is useful to have poisonous plants around the garden perimeter in case of pests (animal or human). We used some lilies to keep feral cats out of our food garden. Lily pollen works well as a deterrent, where nothing else we tried kep the cats from using our raised beds as litter boxes and fishing in our pond. Haven’t found anything to keep out squirrels, though.

    What can’t kill you these days? The whole world is immersed in fear in the moment. Don’t eat eggs! Don’t eat bacon! Don’t do this. Don’t do that. The sky is falling. Death is half-way around the next corner. Unh.

    If people are stupid enough to go randomly walking around their yard stuffing things in their mouth they know nothing about; or leave their kids unattended, not having been taught not to eat random stuff in their yards or the woods?

    Educate yourself, then educate your families. Even some of the most poisonous plants when ingested have serious benefits for other purposes. Like the castor plant.

    Another alarmist headline in a world gone mad. Fill your mind and heart with peace and positivity or go crazy, sit and shiver in a corner in fear of all around you.

    Sorry. My rant for the day. Now I’ll shut up.

    Not sure of the point of the article myself, bog standard common sense dictates you don’t eat what you don’t know “If in doubt, chuck it out”.

    If at first you don't succeed, excessive force is usually the answer.
