I'm trying to identify this invasive weed that is crawling around in my garden pretty much everywhere. It's the only one that consisteltly makes it through my layer of mulch. It's a climber, in the summer it's all over the tomatoes and sunflowers.

Does anybody know what it is ?

Sheep sorrel is the first thing that's popping in my head, but I don't think that's what it is. Do you have any pic of the older plants, maybe with flowers or seedheads?

I found a picture of the flower. The seed pods are round about half a centimeter wide and the seeds about two milimeters and black half-round with corners. Seedpod and seeds are similar to morning glory ones, but a little bit smaller.

On the image you can see the flower and also some small flower buds.

The only cure for that is hours of television radiation. And this tiny ad:
