I've a terrible problem with grass in my vegetable garden here in SE Iowa.
It comes back every year about this time of year when the rains start.
Any help killing it is appreciated.

Put a thick layer of hardwood mulch over the areas you want to control the weeds. The hardwood mulch will tie up the nitrogen and starve the grass.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

It's going to depend on what types of grasses are coming up.

For instance, bermuda or nut sedge, or johnson grass?
Probably make a career out of fighting those.

But... something like annual rye? You could probably just till it under before it produces seed and reap the benefit of all that free green manure!

But... It's impossible to give advice specific to your yard when we don't know what the problem plants are.
