Ok - I've been pulling out teasel seedlings with the help of my 6 year old.
We both seem to have a gotten a rash as a result. Just from the spines or
could there be an other source from the plant as we broke lots of tap roots
and leaves doing it.
No chemicals in the garden - never has been. I've been gardening here for 15
years and did the soil improvement myself.
I've done some quick Google searches, but nothing jumps out at me about that
aspect. (and yes, as neat looking as it is, I wish I had never planted it)
Which would explain why it's on the underside of my arm and the back of her
hands; I loosened with a trowel, she lifted and shook off the dirt and
tossed it in the bucket.
Sounds like she'll want gloves for the next go-round.

it could have been a poison ivy root. it happens to me occasionally and
my 8-yrs old got it a little bit last week as she was helping plant
potatoes. This time of year you can't tell them from something else.
