Sigh.  It's not easy.  It is terrible stuff.  We have it too.  It's part of
the reason (not the whole reason, but a good part of it) why I'm gardening
mostly in Self-Watering Containers now.  

I suppose Roundup would work if I could bring myself to use it.  Our place
is only about 50 feet from a creek and we're uphill from the creek.  I
don't know what Roundup would do to the life in the creek.  I don't think
it would help it, however.
