Note: Adapted into "The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill" segment of the movie "Creepshow". There has been confusion over the years about the title of this story, with some people thinking it was originally titled "Necessary to Stop the Weeds"; this thread,, explains the confusion. The title appears as "Weeds" on the contents page of the issue of Cavalier where it originally appeared; the tagline begins "MORE THAN A GREEN THUMB..." on the artwork on p. 45, followed by a page of artwork with no text, and then the tagline continues "WILL BE NECESSARY TO STOP THE WEEDS" on p.47, followed by the story itself.
