I usually will pull something if it’s not something I purposely panted, but every once in a while I let one go to see what it creates. That happened a few months ago. I strated seeing the usual thistle weeds around the beds, but one of them really stood out, so I let it go. Here’s what the leaves look like.
My thought is that maybe this is a giant sunflower- like a Maximillian variety. I had some of those seeds and planted them around and who knows if I was in a weird mood and planted some right here. That’s the problem with seed insanity- you can’t remember where you put them, you just want to GET THEM IN THE GROUND AND OUT OF MY SEED DRAWER, DAMMIT!
Here’s the other one up close and it doesn’t look like a sunflower. In fact, there are two of these and the second one is branching out into 4 branches.
(sigh) Seed planting frenzy will come back to haunt you every time.
