Dollar weed. There is absolutely nothing I can do about it. It grows because there is too much moisture, due to my soil being very clayey. And it seems to love MM too...weed barrier? Pfft, no problem, it'll just keep sending out it's rhizome until it finds the edge or the overlap. Sheet mulch before putting in a new bed? Lol, it just waits patiently until the cardboard has deteriorated enough. Too bad the weeds are actually worth a dollar each /sigh

Johnson grass and bindweed are tied for me. The wild strawberries are very prolific, but are super easy (and almost fun - satisfying at least) to pull.

Do I get to count the mint plant the previous owners of our house planted in the ground? I managed to kill the chocolate mint and am making headway on the spearmint but yeesh, it is hard to eliminate.

I also have purslane that grows like mad between my boxes (at least I think that is what it is) which as several mentioned here is edible. I'm going to take a sample to the extension office to make sure that is what it is and if so, at least I can get my revenge by eating the blasted weed.

I've just Wikki'd purslane.. it seems quite a remarkable useful weed to have in large pots on hard surfaces well away from your veg beds .
