The second one doesn't look like a broad bean - it's an annual weed whose name I forget.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

I agree Yorkie.  I think the second one is Scarlet Pimpernel and I must admit I thought the first was Sun Spurge rather than broad beans  :unsure:

Both annual weeds that self sow year round more or less so need regular hoeing off  :)

Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humour out of life,
And pass it on to other folk.

My suggestion for the second pic is a bedstraw (goosegrass and its relatives) - pimpernel has opposite leaves where this has whorls of several leaves

Don't think number one is a spurge, though I can't really explain why!

I think the top one is a spurge. The bottom one is almost certainly cleavers, also called goosegrass.

Both are common annual weeds. Both have a simple seasonal solution

 :D :D :D Ho! Ho! Ho!

Anyone got an idea of what this might be? The leafs look and feel quite waxy to the touch (almost like a fake plant). Last year I think it had small red flowers on (although my mind isn't what it used to be and I could be talking rubbish.

It's popped up next to last years garlic, not sure if a bird might have dropped it as seed as we have loads of doves and sparrows nearby.

I'm not convinced I'm right, but perhaps cerinthe major purpurescens?

I think the leaves may be too tightly spaces, and without enough paler flecks on them, for this to be correct, but you can check the picture of the grown plant on the rhs website against what you recall from last year.

not cerinthe  :( It looks like Euphorbia (griffithii has red flowers) ...............  :unsure: that will be sending up flower heads about now.

Lucky you if it is :) If you cut it is there a white milky sap? The sap is an irritant so be careful :wacko:

Yep, I took a bit off earlier and there was a milky sap, I think you are right thanks :)

I've lifted them and put them in a more prominent position :)

Mrs Growster has been busy hoiking out yards of this from a neglected raspberry bed.

It runs for some way and interferes with the raspberry roots more than somewhat.

Any ideas anyone please, as there is enough to keep us in extended-exasperated-hoik-mode for several days if it's a nasty...

Looks like a dead nettle.

And I don't mean a nettle that's dead.

Compare it with this:
