These grow about 4-5 inches per day, and pop up out of nowhere. I pull them up every few days, and new ones just pop up in a day or two. SUPER annoying, and Glyphosate did nothing. Sprayed a healthy coating on the dirt before I mulched. These resilient bastards gave no fucks. Is this milkweed? Best way to eradicate?

idk.

glypohsate doesn't really have any pre-emergent properties...it'll only kill what's alive when it's sprayed. so that would explain why glyphosate didn't do much to keep it from popping up later.

appears to be some sort of magical beanstalk. Let it grow a little bigger and then hit the leaves with glyphosate climb it.

Well, yes I sprayed the soil, but mainly because I had a ton of other already present weeds that needed to be nuked too. But these little fuckers were already "growing" underneath the surface. I know how glyphosate works, but was just hoping it would somehow make it's way into the miniature rhizomes (or whatever you wanna call them at that stage).

About to head outside and change the brake pads on the grocery getter and mix up a gallon or two of glyphosate to send these things straight to hell.
