Can lamb’s quarter and pigweed be composted? Someone told me I should yank them all out and burn them but that seems like a waste of organic material. Also, I know the leaves are edible but I have way more than I need.
I’ve got a sea of dead stalks that have dropped their seeds last fall but are still standing in an area I can’t mow or till. I’m wondering if I can:
- frost-seed a cover crop straight into the stalks that can out-compete the weed seeds and hope the stalks eventually break down on their own.
- hand-pull all the stalks and try to compost them
