I have so often thought about getting a goat or a sheep and confine them to an area and just let them eat away at these weeds!

The seeds can live for years so even when you do remove them they have the ability to come back years later!

I have pulled and pulled and even resorted to spraying an herbicide. The patches get smaller each year so maybe they will eventually disappear?
