bindweed removal

By robshepler on Sat, Aug 2, 2014 - 5:56pm


This year we bit off a chunk of pasture and put up and 8' deer fence around about an acre of land, for a market garden. We added a gravity fed watering system and brought in 117 yards of compost. Our gardening experiences of the last few years stood us in fairly good stead but for the appearance of BINDWEED! This nasty booger has kept me hoeing for most of the season and has really gotten out of hand since our rains have started.

Does anyone have any words of wisdom or hope for this newbie market gardener being strangled by this invasive?

Many thanks!
