What is this?

Post  Belle87ad on 7/18/2012, 6:01 pm

Good afternoon, all. I planted, I thought, cilantro in this square, but there are three different things growing in it. Can anyone identify if they are a certain plant or it they're all just weeds? Thanks!

It is so hard to say for sure! I think the 1 at the top looks like sw. potato.
The 1 in the middle, I've seen before, but, don't remember? The 1 on the left, well, I don't think it's cilantro, but, don't know what it is.

The one in the center is a weed for sure. I can't tell about the other ones. Maybe someone else will help you identify.

At 1:00 a violet, at 4:00 Lamb's Quarters, edible, when it is small like this add it to your salad. At 7:00 purslane, edible.

Thanks guys!!! I pulled them all tonight. I don't want to waste the precious nutrients on weeds. I still felt bad pulling them though. It's all life, right?

Yeah I don't think I'll be getting any of the cilantro or chives that I planted in that row of squares. It's very strange, because when it became obvious that several of the squares planted wouldn't produce, I remixed them with more compost and replanted with different plants and still nothing grew. I'm calling them my "grumpy" squares. Hopefully when I replant for Fall they won't give me as much trouble!

No problem with that - continue the life cycle and throw them in the compost pile to help garden life later on!

That why the grids are so important to our gardening method. Helps us decide if something was planted or if a weed has come up.

I grow lamb's quarters on purpose. It is a wonderful substitute for spinach which I can't grow in the summer in the south. It is delicious raw or cooked. It is also a great green manure as long as you cut it before it reseeds. I freeze quarts size bags of it and put it in soups and quiches. I actually like lamb's quarters better than spinach Smile. It is also called goose foot. There is also a purple/green variety called magenta spreen. It is quite pretty in the garden.
