Super Weed

My apologies to all the stoners who were sucked into reading this entry. This concerns a weed of a different nature. This weed stings. It is ugly. It grows while everything else in my yard dies. I have had no luck in eradicating it.
The culprit is the Canada Thistle. You can Google it yourself to find out what I already know. Herbicides will only weaken it. Chopping it down has no effect. It actually can grown from each fragment of root left underground. The roots spread to form a network of plants. One site says that years of chemical treatment and hacking at it will eventually bring it under control. Encouraging.
