What weeds are you seeing a lot of this season?

Considering all the rainfall this season here, plenty of variety on the smorgasboard.

I have been seeing quite a bit of nutsedge and yellow woodsorrel in particular.
Crabgrass breaking though along drives on some properties.

Worst year I've ever had post spring blanket spray. We had a really wet and cold spring and a one wait for green up. We were three to four weeks behind normal growth schedule.

weed pressure here in taxachusetts has been very low so far. We are into our second heat wave now and we have had a $hitload of rain. The next 8 weeks should be interesting to say the least! Keeping my fingers crossed that my dimension can hang in there!

Lots of crabgrass, and goosegrass, and mostly due to the HO's mowing short to keep uo with the exponential grow of their lawn.

Then, the plantains are taking hold this year along with the wild violets. Last year, with everything, they were non-existent.

Sedges have been an issue around here for the last 5 years or so. So it's not any different on that end.

Honestly I am seeing more oxalis than usual. Better than the spurge and purslane I am used to seeing this time of year and crabgrass isn't a big issue.
