Notes:

Several of the same type of plants in a wild untended pasture area have knoty growths near the top of the plants. What causes this?

    Happy to find out about this, I have wondered or years. My two favorite things, bugs and plants combined!

    Like Dick above, we would pick these in the winter too to go ice fishing. We’d brake them off from the plant, then take them home and open them with a knife, dig out the little yellow grub and put it in a jar of sawdust so they wouldn’t all stick together.

    Walter is right on–we used to pick these in winter when I lived in Michigan 50 yrs ago and take them icefishing. When it was time to bait the hook we would cut it open and use the 1/4″ worm inside. Great bait for bluegill (Bream)

    goldenrod gall fly. Fisherpersons say the larvae inside the galls are one of the best fish baits ever!
