i notice a milkweed type plant in one of the fields that is over-grown. when i see it in winter, it has a long skinny pod that looks like a dried greenbean. now that i see it in the summertime, i am surprised it is a whole lot like milkweed. it has the white sticky liquid but, like i said, the pods are long and skinny. what i thought was going to be what i am used to calling milkweed, the plant with the big fat pods, turned out to be something else. is this what flax is?
