I have a couple of acres that I've had beef on the last two years. Was in row crops for years, then sat idle for 5 or 6 years. Thistles and every other sort of weed took over. It was very bad. I have managed the thistles by walking the pasture twice a week with a shovel, cutting them off at ground level. I think I have them and most of the other weeds under control. I am looking forward to next year already. There is only one problem. There is one area that is about 150 foot by 150 foot that is very fertile black soil and it has become a solid mass of ground ivy, also known as creeping charlie. The ivy is so thick that nothing else grows there. Can I beat this horrible weed and if so, how? I do not want this evil pest to take over the rest of my pasture. Help. Will rotational grazing eventually take care of this or should I spray or plow the stuff under? I'm not in a rush but I do want to win the battle against this stuff. I'm in S.E. Wisconsin, right on the border with Illinois.
