I Wonder if This Is True?

"But very often, especially under modern farming practices, the farmer’s field is depleted and lacking in life and fertility, and other “weeds” invade, not with the intent to compete with the farmer’s crop, but rather to perform a service. Most “weeds” are actually reclaiming, restoring, and redeeming land polluted and spoiled by methods that eye profit alone with little or no homage to the creative life of our natural world."

(from the Bruderhof site)

Maybe that's why we have to put up the tares for now.
