Can you tell where the Japanese honeysuckle vine was?

Phew, are those all seedlings? Not shoots coming from roots?

None of those are honeysuckle. They're all weeds (mostly Galinsoga quapriradiata I think) that sprouted in the foot print of the vine I yanked out. I've pulled a few straggling honeysuckle vines, but not many.
I tried to throw the decomposed mulch back over the disturbed area, but as you can see, it failed. I don't know Galinsoga's seed dormancy capability, so I suppose it could have been seeds coming in and sprouting in the disturbed soil as well.
Luckily it's a small area and I've just been hand pulling them for now. I hate to top up mulch since this is a new house (as of a year ago) and I'd rather wait until the borders are adjusted and plans more established and order a load of bark fines all at once. There are a lot of changes that need to be made. But I may have to go get a bag of something and a hunk of cardboard to cover this spot.
Supposedly Galinsoga quapriradiata is quite palatable. Maybe I should have cooked them up.
