It reminds me of the ornamental millets that I have seen in garden centres, so maybe this is millet. Let it seed and you can feed it to the birds, Growster, or have enough for a small crop to sow next year perhaps?

Good idea, KC, I'll do that - it is definitely a mystery plant which just looks like a sweetcorn, and we all like those don't we!

Sure is confusing!  definitely not actual, real, sweetcorn it sort of flattens out and is much squatter, the seeds are also looser and more brown, a bit like the tassels on sweetcorn rather than a cob ....

This has appeared on my plot this year, lots come up in a defined area. Just wondering if it could be the remnants of corn planted in this area a couple of seasons ago which squirrels decimated and scattered around.  Or is it just a grass seed that has blown in?

I would say it looks like a sedge (Carex)

Mystery weed hasn't been too happy with the pot I put it in. However I found a more developed one with some flower buds, maybe they can aid in identification?

I noticed this one today, stood out from the surroundings. Initially I was thinking potato but I'm not sure, the stem feels too woody for that.

The look more like seed pods than buds, to me  :wacko: did we miss the flowers?

Greyscales, is this weed a ground cover type, spreading out? I think it might be swine cress,  if so those are seed pods the flowers are much smaller and insignificant. If you google it you will get some pictures to compare.

A new one to me, but it does look like the photo for Lepidium didymum Lesser Swine-cress

Most definitely I have had a lot of it on the butterfly conservation area that I am developing. The soil has been disturbed and thrown this up and other interesting weeds! So I am becoming expert on identifying them! Son is an ecologist so that helps.

Think we have a winner here, that looks like it. Apparently it has edible leaves but I'm not trying it :tongue2:

Thanks for the identification.
