Problem weed in veges : follow up

catkins(z9 CA)June 16, 2010

Thank you all very, very much for your help and suggestions. You are all very appreciated. The problem weed turns out to be yellow nutsedge. I understand from researching it that products called sedgehammer, pennant, manage will all work to kill it, but shouldn't be used in the veges. I think we have worsened the prob by how we have pulled it over the years, breaking the rhizomes off. We have a very healthy crop of it this year. Hmmm, maybe its good in salad, LOL.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that. And I am so glad that I don't have it yet.
