I'm working on my first garden for months, I'm spending a lot of energy to understand the garden.
I have this new weeds that are developing in the Garden. I really need help identifying so I know what to do with them. For example I found out that one of them is Sorrel (3 Heart leafs) and that it's edible. Tasted it and loved it.
SO I want to understand the rest. I'll post them one after the other.
The name, if edible/useful and is it harmful to the garden?
any other info is more than welcome.
In the photos, I keep my fingers or my boots with the Puma logo in to understand the size of this plants.
Don't know beans about plants native to your region but I suspect the following:
1-Possible Geranium sp.
2-Something in the Composite Family, perhaps a Sonchus.
4-Could be Pokeweed, Phytolacca americana. Are the lower stems reddish?
#2-Whether Sonchus, Radish, Chicory, Mustard, Dandelion relative or such it is edible, though perhaps not enticing.
#4-If Pokeweed, young shoots are eaten by some but the mature plant and berries are highly toxic. Pokeweed is a garden pest here and quickly develops large taproots that are a lot of work to fully remove, so get them while small.
#5-Euphorbias can be difficult weeds in the garden, and since their sap burns the skin, care should be taken in removal.
I have some new ones if you have a clue.. have a look in the photos
is the second one Euphorbia_peplus? i find the leaves a bit different..
the third picture are of a very familiar plant, but i can't guess the same
the 4th is a very greeny shrub ..
