Hi all, started working on my garden (first home) and the garden is covered with the weed I've attached the pic of. Couldn't find anything like it when I went searching online. Hoping you can help... I plan on putting a veg garden where these have spread so don't want to use chemicals. Can I just pull them up? Anyone know what species they are?

Thanks cooler. Could be.. haven't seen them flower in the year I've been here though. they are 4ft tall and The leaf growth is almost like a perfect ball sitting on top of a tall slim trunk... I'm going to pull them.
