Weed control

Today I spent most of the day whacking and chopping weeds. Most were thistles,Canadian and Bull, but there were a few burrs, and other weeds. Then I noticed in one pasture by the road a whole bunch of knapweed (coming from the hillside ditch). Knapweed is very very hard to get rid of. It's seeds can last 7 years and spraying is not very effective. So I'm going to cut that before it goes to seed and hope it does not spread. Livestock don't like to eat it either (except when very young .) Click to "biggify" any picture.
