I photographed all of the weeds I saw in the orchard/pasture an acre or two. Can you identify them?
|Are violets weeds or flowers? Cows munched these too as part of the cow pasture. They seemed to grow well in the cow pasture and thrive where other delicate wild flowers fail.|
|I don't know what this weed is, but it could be the dreaded wild parsnip, but I don't think so. I suppose if I rub some of the plant leaves and stem juice on Margo's arm and see if it leaves blisters, I could be sure.|
|The large rhubarb shaped leaves are from the first year growth of a burdock. Next year it will grow very tall and have the sticky seed balls that inspired Velcro as a fastener.|
|Cows and deer love red clover that comes as a volunteer in the old pasture. It is a biannual, but reseeds itself if left unmown. Beautiful big red blooms are a bumble bee favorite.|
|Not sure what the weed is here.|
