Since I have so many new and unknown (to me) prairie flowers, grasses and weeds popping up…I thought I’d start a new series of posts:
Name that Weed
This beauty is popping up all over the pasture. It’s shrub-like with small, needle-like green leaves.
The pretty yellow flowers grow in tight clusters and the bushes are about 1′ tall.
Little yellow flowers bloom
Needle leaves so prickly
Bushes here and everywhere
Growing oh so quickly
Is it charlock?
I think it might be! Definitely a member of the mustard family. Yay! My chickens will be so happy!
