So right, unless you are brave enough to compost them with pigeon manure and forget to cover it up . After a rainfall it starts to cook your neighbors are ready to tar and feather you but on the bright side weed seeds aren't a problem anymore.Just be CAREFUL NOT to compost weeds that have gone to seed!! You will create a garden bed of them and their seeds live F O R E V E R!!!
I mowed/mulched 1st year burdock (they produce burrs in their 2nd year) and put them around my peppers. Not only did 3 inch deep of this kept all weeds from sprouting, but they are almost dirt right now. They can have a purpose.
Also, any weed that sends down roots underground (like bindweed) Can and WILL rehydrate!!! If you pull it up, throw it away (or burn it.) I have thrown it out of vegetable beds and then found it growing in my lawn.
Yes, sheep love weeds, but there are some that they should NOT eat. One example is lupine .... it causes abortion.That is a good article and quite a good list of weeds. But one thing for left out.
WEEDS THAT GROW IN A SHEEP PASTURE
