There is a vining plant that came up in my garden a few years ago I don't know what it is but it is very invasive. It's leaves are dark green and it has small yellow flowers. I've tried digging and pulling but it just keeps spreading. What is it,and how can I get rid of it?

Based on your description, unfortunately I am not able to identify the weed for you. I would suggest you work with your local county extension to identify it and determine the best way to get rid of it. With most perennial vining weeds, it takes a combination of sustained efforts including repeated cutting to exhaust the root, or treatments with an herbicide containing glyphosate. (Read and follow all label directions, this is a nonselective herbicide and will damage your desirable plants if it contacts them.) Either way, do not let it set seed and increase itself by seeding.
