I sprayed the bindweed here twice with glyphosate. This knocked it down for a month. Not bad... but the roots are alive still. It's starting to revive itself. I want to get away from using glyphosate because I dont want any minerals to be bound to it / removed from being available to the pumpkin plant. Plus it doesnt work on perennials. With perennials its three strikes your out--maybe. I cant get clear answers from the internet about what it does exactly. The answers on the net are general type answers they are not precise... Drives me nuts. I would still consider using it for prepping ground for commercial jack o' lanterns but for competitive growing I cannot figure out whether its a step in the wrong direction.

I could go on and on. Roundup rant: I like having clear answers. Murky answers keep things profitable???
