So this is the Bindweed Garden at the end of the season. The pumpkin patch planted to suppress the Bindweed was a dismal failure. The Bindweed was laughing at me behind my back. What actually happened was the Bindweed twirled around the pumpkin vines and made it's way into the squash area before I even knew it was happening. I ripped out the pumpkins and pulled back the Bindweed from the squashes. Jeez. It really is the weed from hell. Bleach seemed to have the best result so far. This week I am noticing that it is now fading as its getting cooler. I guess the battle will resume in the spring.
