This weed is spreading on my lawn. What is it and how do I get rid of it organically please? Right now I just pull them by hand

There is no organic method except covering the area with several inches of mulch.
If you can pulling it works best BUT it has a deep root and if you do not get the whole root it will come back.
I try to pull when the ground is quite moist.
At that you pull it and then put down a pre-emergent in spring.
Do this for several years and it will be easy to control if not gone.

@RpR There's a catch 22. If I put down mulch then the grass won't be able to grow. What is a pre-emergent?
