I've spent several weeks hand-digging out dock and other obnoxious weeds from our pastures. There's a couple cubic yards of it now in the back of the pickup. I was considering hot-composting this in a separate pile and covering it in thick black plastic to cook it sufficiently to kill off the roots.
Has anyone hot-composted dock or other hardy roots such as these?
Aside: We don't use herbicides here on the farm as a general rule so anything I do to these needs to be a herbicide-free solution.
