Moved an item to the correct folder.
** The story was influenced heavily by Creator/HPLovecraft's ''Literature/TheColourOutOfSpace'' in which a meteorite lands in a small, backwards New England farm. The meteorite contains an alien colour which infects the land and water around the farm. Ammi Pirece, the narrator telling the story to a guy from a land development agency, states that [[spoiler: the area of infection/contamination is growing slowly, year by year...]]

Added brackets to enclose link.
** Going back farther, when European settlers first came to the Americas, they brought several plant species with them. Normally not thought of as being aggressive, when introduced to the environment, they went absolutely berserk. Before kudzu, the Deep South was overrun with peach trees (see the correlation between peaches and the state of Georgia,) and Argentina was smothered under feral spinach. Though, being edible, these weren't as bad as kudzu. (Technically, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kudzu#Food_and_beverage kudzu is also edible]], but that requires a lot of processing and is a pain.)
