  • I’ve noticed more poison ivy this year than I recall in previous years.  
    Maybe I am more observant or maybe the farm is just weedier. Either way it makes people nervous.  
    I am not particularly allergic to this devious vine but Andy, my husband, will blister like being burned by fire whenever he comes into contact with it.  
    A few years ago we were trimming sheep hooves (sheep will eat poison ivy with no ill effects) and Andy inadvertently kneeled in some manure as we set to the task.
