    They are one of the many challenges we gardeners have, bindweed.
    That looks quite young, so you could dig it up, but it has white brittle roots and if you miss a tiny bit of root it'll re-grow.
    Lift it up with a fork - go deep as you can, then check the soil for the roots which are quite thick, creamy white and very brittle, so try not to miss any bits and put the roots in the household waste, not in a compost bin or they may carry on growing.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
