My new garden is overrun with morning glories. They're really pretty in the morning but wow, that stuff is like kudzu. They've covered everything and they're starting to pull down the fencing.
I asked in the gardening forum and someone suggested asking here. I'm in the market for some goats anyway so this would be great news if they would eat morning glories. I could keep them in the garden.
Does it matter what kind of goat it is? I've heard that purebred goats or dairy goats (the kind I want) are pickier about eating weeds. But I have a friend that can loan me some crossbred wethers if that's what I need.
Yes, and bindweed is actually a fairly highly nutritious feed. By all means, start out with loaned wethers - if you have good fencing to keep them in. THey would get your feet wet as to whether you wanted to keep goats.
hmmm dont have any morning glories or poison ivy anymore...course the lilac bush is gone too. But I figured thats the price I'll pay for not getting poison ivy this year. Don't know about the bamboo they would probable try it, and if they liked it then no more bamboo for you...
