Some help Identifying these plants? *DIALUP Warning* Updated with more plants.

Last edited Tue May 29, 2012, 02:10 PM - Edit history (2)

Any ideas on the big one in the upper right or the two just below it?

Another view of the plants below the large one.

Again I'm lost on what these are.

Cucumber maybe?

Then this. Also does anyone know what the smaller plant seen in the lower right is? I see them popping up all over in my soil some random weed?

How about this big one?

Finally how bout these?

Edit adding new greenery.

PIC A & B

Have these buggers up where I had watermelon last year, they seem vine like but I don't remember the watermelons looking like this. Is it possible they are cucumbers or perhaps some squash/zucchini? We tried zucchini but I don't remember any of them yielding anything if they even survived, peppers only bore a few that were tiny.

PIC C & D

Long tall buggers, don't have a clue perhaps some errant seeds the birds ate and dropped?

The large plant with the butterfly/snowflake like leaves. Something else the birds deposited?

1. Okay, here we go, LOL!

picture 1: the tall one appears to be a sunflower of some sort. The smaller one on the left I don't know, but is probably a weed. The smaller one on the right is something in the: squash family.

Pic 2: same as above

Pic 3: Something in the squash family

Pic 4: Probably a cucumber, as you said.

Pic 5: Lamb's quarter. Considered a weed, but it is an edible weed.

Pic 6: Probably a sunflower, or a zinnia.

Pic 7: Plant on left, don't know, may be some sort of lettuce. Plant on right, most likely broccoli or cauliflower.

2. Wow, that was excellent!

You really know your plants! I was wondering, do you think the plant on the bottom left in pic 1 is some type of strawberry plant?

3. No, it is not.

Strawberrys don't have lobed leaves. There are 3 simple serrated leaflets on each petiole (stem).

6. Agreed - false strawberry. Some other notes:

 

I mostly agree with Kurtzapril4, but do have some other ideas.

Where I differ is with the "Then this." (pic 5) - it looks like a radish to me. The seeds will stay dormant for years and just randomly sprout (generally when tilling brings them to the right sprouting depth). I scatter plant them for the root development (builds the soil) and we eat a lot of them. The one in the bottom right of pics 1, 2, and 5 (small) is a very prolific weed. Pic 7 left looks a lot like sorrel and the one on the right is clearly a brassica but it's too early to identify for sure.

7. Thanks.

This is what I get for trying to grow so many things at once. I got sick of having to buy plants from the store, last year, cause mine kept dying on transfer/getting ate by bugs/squirrels/etc. So I went shotgun trying to grow lots of things then got overwhelmed with them all.

8. The small one in pic 1 looks like maybe delphinium?


Some look like weeds - field mustard in the next to last one (I think) Edit: no that is broccoli as another said)

Agree about the squash/melon/cucumber ones

I do the same thing - plant seeds and then forget what I planted so i have to take a guess about which is a "real plant" and which is a stray weed. A lot of really nice flowers look like weeds before they get any blooms.

5. I can't help you with the plants

except the weeds, which I am getting good at. But if you are like me, you can have fun waiting for them to bloom or fruit to see what you have----I get a kick out of surprised myself. And if you still need help when they flower, that will make it easier.

9. New pics:

A + B= don't know what they are, but they aren't watermelon. Since they seem to be all over the place, I would guess a weed.
C + D= Hair allium
E= Pretty sure it's a weed.

10. RE: New Pics.

A and B are Japanese Hops. Annual hops species that is grown as an ornamental (although usually the green and white or gold and green variegated forms) or for herbal/medicinal use. It's a long vine, needs a trellis.

C and D are indeed the ornamental allium 'Hair' -- http://www.johnscheepers.com/catview.cgi?_fn=Item&_recordnum=1172

E is Malva neglecta aka Cheese mallow. Member of the hibiscus family. Leaves can be used raw in salads when young and tender, or cooked as a green. The flowers turn into round pods that look like a cheese wheel, and can also be eaten in salads when young and tender.
