But I put a lot of money into that plot and I just want to know if was well spent. I just mowed it down when I got the pics and the clover is doing ok you just cant see it with all of that other stuff.

It don't look like Alfalfa, most of that has a purple bloom. Really need a better pic, but it looks like the weed called Campion. http://www.ppws.vt.edu/scott/weed_id/melal.htm

No I did not get your PM Haystack.

I dont get it. That stuff only grew where I planted. It is not in the feild. So I dont know where the seed would have came from.

Those come up some times when you work up the ground,clip them off before they reseed by mowing right above the clover

That white flowering stuff is a weed called White Campion ... I have a bunch of this in my clover plots. It will bloom almost all summer. The more I cut it, the more it seems to bloom. It laughed at the butyrac 200 sprayed this spring.

Default One tough customer

I have the wicked sister to White Campion called Bladder Campion.

It won't laugh at Glyphosate, Banvel, 2,4,D or several other potent herbicides, but none of those chemicals will kill it either. The new seedlings will die, but it is a long lived perennial and onced established the only thing I have found to get rid of it is a moldboard plow. Best advice is to clean the equipment that is used to cut it because the seed will hitch a ride where ever you take it.

Here it is in alfalfa and red clover.




Here is why it is so hard to kill. IMO


It has one hell of a root.


The deer around here won't eat it either
