    Battling weeds all summer this year. Wiped out a good crop of Violets and Ground Ivy using T-Zone. I'm having a heck of a time with one weed that I haven't been able to identify. It's like clover but the leaves are very thick. Hoping someone can I'D it and give me an idea on how to treat it. It grows in round clumps and I have it throughout the yard.

    Ooops...sorry about that. I'm in Central Ma. You think its Chickweed? The images online seem to show most chickweed producing small flowers but I don't recall ever seeing this weed flower. This is the first year I've noticed it and I have it in spots all over the yard.

    I'd say in the last 2 months is when I started noticing it. The last few weeks it seems its really taken off.

    I pulled some up tonight and took a few more pictured.

    COMMON CHICKWEED (stellaria media)

    Growth is Annual, so it should all die out over the Winter.
    Reproduces the following season from seed like Crabgrass.
