Definitely brassicaceae. Looks like field pennycress to me, a close up of the seed pods would help.  They should be broad and winged "with the style persisting in a deep notch".  Does it smell of garlic it could be garlic pennycress!

I will get some more pictures of it tomorrow, along with the root showing.  I've not smelt it, but Googling imaging brassicaceae, it don't appear to be that.

Looks like something I used to see at the beach up on the shingle bar. I'll have a think.

I've remembered, but it is not quite the right answer: Crambe maritima (Sea Kale) but it is definitely something similar ie one of the brassica family as diospyros said imho. It is an extensive family  :D

I think they can hybridise, which is one of the problems with GM, that the genes from the tame plants can get out into the wild populations. So we might have to satisfy ourselves with "a member of the brassica family, possibly a hybrid between one of the pennycresses and an unknown cultivated variety"!

Is this a weed - the seed came out of a parsnip seed packet.  Looks like a lettuce sort of thing.

I know it's not an Allotment.

Found this in my newly acquired weed half plot. It looked pretty and not really like a weed so I dug round it for now. The flowers are actually a pale yellow. Any ideas? Also will it return next year (meaning I need to dig it up and move it) or will it have seeds I can save and sow in my wild flower area for next year?

That one will die over Winter but, from experience, next Spring will see lots and lots and lots. They hoe out easily and a few left will attract bees and hoverflies.

Seed save easily but the seeds on that plant may not have time to ripen.

Looks like the seeds to the bottom of the photo are browning now, so when they are really dark you can sow them straight away this Autumn up to the end of October really.

Saves storing them  :lol:

You probably will get lots of colours next year from them

Hi All!
Spot the weed(s).
 
Is the plant in the middle a weed? Any idea what it can be?

It looks a bit like a perpetual spinach (or chard) plant that has bolted /is running to seed.

Looks like that weed with pink/red flowers I get,don't know it's name though. Wait & see if flowers appear,then stop it seeding.
