Japanese Stilt Grass (Microstegium vimineum)

The goat lady told me what this was called. It was introduced to the United States around 1919 as packing material for porcelain and escaped and flourished. It's considered very invasive. Fortunately, it's shallow-rooted, so it's easy to pull up. I know because I pulled bags and bags of it out of my garden. Maybe I should just hire the goats to come eat the rest of it. They think it's yummy.
